It's that time of the year — best of 2009 time! And to kick off our fun, comprehensive coverage of the most popular GeekSugar content from the past year, I thought I'd turn the attention to one of the most talked about topics of 2009 — social networks. I've pitted five of the top ranking social networking sites of '09 against each other, and I can't wait to see which one is your favorite. Some of you have already said that you prefer Facebook over Twitter, but what about the others? Which one will take home the coveted Best of 2009 Sugar Award? Time to weigh in below!
I hate it when the trailer for a movie has me all excited, and then a few minutes in I realize I have a totally lame, boring, or disappointing 90 minutes ahead of me (why Speed Racer, why?!). So after a friend turned me on to Flixter, I've been feeling a little more confident that the movie I'm about to see is worthy of my $10.50.
Flixter's tagline is "Stop Watching Bad Movies." 'Nuff said! With thousands of other movie buffs like you weighing in every day, you get a good idea of what the masses think about that new action flick in a simple, quick, and easy-to-read rating system. Plus, you can check out reviews of DVDs and get your social fix by seeing what films your friends have seen and rated. Another cool thing about Flixter is you can participate in user-generated polls and quizzes based on movies they've seen. It's a pretty hopping place, that Flixter. You should check it out.
