7 Sites You Should Be Wasting Time On Right Now
But as web creativity shifted from websites on Blogger and Tumblr to social media sites like Twitter, Instagram and Reddit, that feature disappeared in mid-2014.
I still like spotlighting interesting and entertaining websites, so I’m going to use HuffPo’s old feature title for this blog post.
Here are seven websites you should be wasting time on right now:
Either – A game of preference
Either is an online game where you have to choose between two alternatives. You decide and you see how your answer compares with hundreds of thousands of other people.
For instance, “Would you rather … be Cinderella or be Ariel?” (38% said Cinderella and 62% Ariel.)
Others are more troubling. For instance, “Would you rather … Be as you are now or have $100 million, but have a 5% chance of instant death?” (56% took the money and the possibility of death.)
The Higher-Lower Game
Higher-Lower Game challenges players to guess which of two things gets more Google searches per month.
The Walk of Life Project
Walk of Life Project is a funny website with videos that show what famous movies would have been like if they ended with the song “Walk of Life” by Dire Straits. It’s ridiculous, but entertaining.
Talk Like the Boss
Talk Like the Boss is a website that documents business buzzwords, jargon and euphemisms. For instance, don’t say layoffs, call it a “workforce rebalance.”
Guy at your J-School
Guy at your J-School is a Twitter account that parodies pompous student journalists, or rather, “story-tellers.”
Robots for a $15 Minimum Wage
Robots for a $15 Minimum Wage is a funny, yet informative, Facebook page that shows how the political push for a nationwide $15 minimum wage will lead to more automation replacing low-wage jobs.
The Faces of $15 – Consequences of minimum wage hikes
The Faces of $15 explains the consequences of minimum wage hikes with real examples of businesses and workers negatively impacted.
