Imgur is the hip place for image and .gif hosting at the moment, but browsing it is a pain in the butt. When you open up the app or open Imgur on the computer, with each click of the next button something new shows up. It’s a bit unique since you never know what you will get, but I think we would all appreciate some structure.
Imgur today announced the addition of Topics which make exploration easier if you’re looking for certain kind of posts. That should make it a bit more user friendly.
The Topics option is available in the users’ gallery sorts. You can choose a Topic and see all of the content associated with it. For example you can check out Most Viral, Aww, Awesome, Funny or The More You Know, just to name a few. Imgur says that this new feature retains the serendipity of the service, since users really don’t know what post is coming up once they click the next button, but it still lines up with a user’s interests.
Imgur created the initial set of Topics based on the “landscape of Imgurian created tags,” and they believe the set is comprehensive enough to cover the wide variety of content that’s available while still being small enough that managing the set won’t cause problems.
