Oublio Shows You What’s Hot on Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, and More

Oublio

A few minutes of Reddit a day keeps the worries away. I don’t know about you, but that statement definitely applies to me, at least, especially when I’ve had a really long day at work. Sometimes, I try to sneak a peek or two at my favorite stress-relief sites during my lunchbreak, but since I don’t have the luxury of time, I browse on over to Oublio instead.

It’s a site that shows the most popular image on Reddit and a bunch of other micro-blogging sites and social networks like Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Flickr. You might not see much, but it’s enough to let you know what’s currently trending on all five sites without having to check out all of them.

Reddit Keeps Things Simple With their New Webseries ‘Explain Like I’m Five’

Concepts like Friederich Nietzsche and his philosophy of existentialism can be difficult to understand. Reddit knows this, which is why they’re explaining what it’s all about in the simplest terms and ways possible in the first episode of their new web series called ‘Explain Like I’m Five.’ I think it’s clear what they intend to do from the title of the series itself.

If you frequent the site, there’s a subreddit of the same name that exists with the same concept as the series. Essentially, complex topics are tackled and discussed in such a way that even five-year-olds could understand. At least, that’s what they hope to do, in theory.

Blogger Pays People to Slap Him Whenever He Goes on Facebook and Reddit–Say What?

Blogger Slap

It doesn’t matter whether they’re old or new. Habits are habits, and oftentimes, they die hard. A lot of people these days are hooked to social networks. Not a problem most of the time, but if you work from home or telecommute, then it could have an adverse effect on your productivity. Take Sethi’s case. He’s a blogger for Hack the System and he didn’t like the fact that he spent most of his time chatting on Facebook or reading stuff on Reddit.

So he hired someone off of Craigslist to sit beside him while he worked and slap him when he went off-page. I kid you not. This is what his ad actually said:

I’m looking for someone who can work next to me at a defined location (my house or a mission cafe) and will make sure to watch what is happening on my screen. When I am wasting time, you’ll have to yell at me or if need be, slap me.

He got a lot of slaps (hit the break to watch a video of him get a huge one across his face) but his productivity improved. In fact, it quadrupled. I guess despite its craziness, it actually worked.
