10 must-try websites for creative minds


 BuzzFeed

www.buzzfeed.com

At times, social networking and news websites get boring and you need a change. Mash these two up and you've got a fascinating new timer-killer. “7 Problems Only People with Glasses Understand’ “18 Microwave Snacks you Can Cook In A Mug”, “23 Things That Could Only Exist In Silicon Valley”. Although this “social news website” owes a large part of its success to the ambushing (and sometimes very useful) lists, they feature a wide array of subjects. The site has everything from international news to cute pictures of animals. Celebrity scoops, the latest on your favorite TV shows, creative ideas, photographs, jokes quizzes, videos – you name it and BuzzFeed’s got it. All the posts are sorted into different sections like OMG, LOL, Cute, Fail and so on. Want to know what the buzz is about? Go ahead and see for yourself, and don’t miss the ListiClock browse mode.


FanFiction

www.fanfiction.net



 Following a book TV show or a movie is one thing, and participating in the world of related fanfiction (fiction written by fans on the character and/or plot of the original work) is totally another experience. FanFiction.net is the place for all your fanfiction needs. Pick a show, book, a cartoon or some comics, and chances are that you’ll find tons of stories written by other people of that fandom here. You can browse through the elaborate lists and filter the results by genre, characters, length and rating, If you’re sad that a series has come to end try its fanfictin, some of them are so well written that the line between them and the original stories will be completely blurred and you’ll get lost in an extended fictional world. As if this wasn't enough, people are also mashing up two different universes, for instance characters and elements from the magical world of Harry Potter and Once Upon a Time (TV series) crossing over in one story.


MakeUseOf

www.makeuseof.com/pages/the-best-of

 The site provides a good list of some of the best apps, games, plug-ins and tweaks for all you techiles out there. MakUseOf.com maintains a specific list of over a hundred software for different platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, as well as smartphones and tables. It is a must-visit if you use any electronic device or gadget that runs any of the above mentioned operating systems. And a lot of what’s featured there is available for free. It also lists the best portable apps and hosting services. This link is full of goodies and will come in handy on multiple occasions.


JustDeleteMe

www.JustDelete.me



 Want to delete one or more of your online accounts? JustDeleteMe makes the process easier for you by giving direct links to delete your accounts from a variety of popular web services. The site also ranks and color codes different online stores, communities and social networkingsites on the basis of how easy it is to remove a personal account and information form it. Instagram, Scrib, Hotmail and all the ones marked in green let you delete your account without any hassle. However the process gets tricky as you move up the difficulty scale from yellow rated Watsapp and LinkedIn to red rated sites like Skype and Etsy. And then there are those with that dreaded black colored impossible rating, sites from where it is almost impossible to remove a username or account, for instance Evernote and Pinterst. JDM can’t do much about those but it does give you the next best alternates for them.


Webmd

 This site is great for medical students as well as ordinary people. It’s one of the most popular and comprehensive sites that internet inhabitants resort to when they need any sort of medical information.
