Pronounced as “imager”, it is a free photo hosting and photo sharing service that does not require registration or membership. Just upload photos and you’re good to go. However, you may choose to open an Imgur account in order to manage your photos and create custom image galleries. The hassle-free system has made Imgur one of the most popular photo hosting sites, with millions of photos hosted everyday. It even has its own statistics page which shows how many images have been uploaded and how many image views have been recorded each day, each week and each month. Numbers run into the millions. For an image to land in the public gallery, only one thing is needed – the photo must be popular in the Internet. Using Twitter’s Topsy search engine, photos that are trending are the ones that are displayed in Imgur’s homepage gallery.
