What is imgur.com?
Imgur.com was created by Alaan Schaaf, a boy who started the company while he was studying computer Science in Athens, Ohio. The page which the creator called "an image hosting service that does'nt suck", was created as a response to the usability problems encountered in similar services. In the first five months, the page had a good ranking in the world and a lot of people started to use it. In the beginning, Imgur relied on donations to help with the web hosting costs. As the site grew, it needed additional sources of revenue to keep up with demand.
