Too bored of the daily routine?

This is one question we all face at some point of time in our lives. Sometimes we reach a tipping point of boredom and every other thing looks as if it will lead to more of tedium. So, how to get yourself out of this situation? Well, the answer is turning on your internet and going online to surf some cool websites which will surely make your day a tad more interesting. In other words, the boredom is bound to go away. So here is a small collection of those websites you must surely visit or subscribe to:

This platform, also available in the form of an application, takes you to the world of small looping videos. You can share, like, post, repost (revine, in this case) any video of your choice. You can also use hashtags, something which has become a phenomenon in the recent years. The facility of hashtag can also be attributed to the fact that Vine was bought up by twitter soon after its launch.

Flickr

Although, it looks like another photo-sharing website, Instagram allows you a unique experience when it comes to photo sharing. You can add the specifically made class-based filters to make your pictures look better. You can also share your pictures on other social networking sites including Facebook, Tumblr, etc. The latest updates of Instagram also allow you to share your videos and look up videos/pictures of others as well.

Reddit

This is something different from all the other networking sites. Reddit makes you post links for some specific contents which are then voted up or down with the already existing strong reddit community. The link with most upvotes moves to the first page of their subreddits for being the best voted content.
