Like Reddit, you can get involved in the voting and discussions as well.

So, everyone knows that YouTube is the king of internet video, but Vimeo holds a special place in viewers' hearts — particularly for their beautiful full-length films, animated shorts, amazing documentaries and more. Vimeo is where cinematography really comes to life. If you want to watch something that will blow you away, start using Vimeo.

Yahoo Answers has been the general go-to site to crowdsource answers to questions, but they're not always terribly useful, informative or even correct. Quora, on the other hand, has a much higher quality community of members with knowledge and expertise in every topic under the sun. Search for questions, create your own or offer your answers to others.

Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes is the place to go for everything movies and TV. It's particularly helpful in gauging whether something is worth watching, thanks to the reviews this site offers. In addition to that, you can also watch trailers, see what's hot right now, catch up on movie/TV news and more. It's basically a couch potato's dream come true.

IFTTT (If This Then That) is a web tool that allows you to connect the apps and internet services you use so that when you manually create an action on one app/service, it automatically generates an action on a corresponding app/service that you set up. It basically helps you cut down on manual tasks by automating them. Super useful if you use a lot of online tools.

Here's another for the movie and TV-loving couch potatoes. Or at least for those who can never remember actors' names. Similar to Rotten Tomatoes, IMDb is a popular source for entertainment news and information. One of the big advantages of having this site bookmarked is access all the celeb content. This is where you go to find out more about a particular celebrity.
