Ways of having fun on the Internet.

Updated on October 21, 2011

What to do when you're bored.

Are you bored? Got nothing to do? Then, this lens is just for you!

You've checked your e-mails, updated your website, shopped online, used instant messengers. Now what? Do you sit blank after you've completed your daily internet tasks and have time to spare? Are you getting bored? Then here are some fun tasks you can do to kill those extra hours or minutes.

Make a Squidoo lens.

Now i'm not promoting squidoo :P. But hey, it really is a lot of fun here. Just choose your favorite topic/s and blab all you want about it. Trust me family and friends aren't willing to listen to your interests. Squidoo is the best option to spread your word. Since squidoo has millions of members you can end up making friends with other lens masters and don't forget, you can also earn cash on the side.


Yahoo Answers

If you're online and getting bored why not think of the things you always wanted to know. Like, why is the sky blue? What's the best remedy for oily skin? Or how long will it take me to buy a new car? Ask questions, answer questions, help someone out and learn something new. Yahoo answers is a fun way of interacting with people from around the world. And trust me, sometimes people ask such silly questions that you just can't stop laughing. Nothing ever stops here.You will need a yahoo account to ask,answer and rate questions.

Yahoo Answers


Top ranked social community.

Myspace doesn't need an introduction. If you're not a member yet, you should checkout this very cool and popular social community site. You can customize your page entirely with your choice, make friends, join groups n all. I've also heard celebrities use myspace too, so who knows you might come across one. Have fun.



Another fun way to interact with people. The best thing about orkut is the scraps. Rate friends in accordance with trust,persona and looks. Write testimonials about your friends and let others know your verdict. Join fun communities made my people just like you. Its one of the best social networking sites.Make new friends around the world and increase your network.Free to join.



Facebook is also a social community site where you'll find people from all over the world. Facebook has spread like wildfire. Well, what makes it cool are the applications.You can bite your friends and turn them into werewolves,zombies and even vampires,but not in real.You can setup your current mood or pick a fight. Join fun groups and interact with people from your joined network.Well i won't tell you everything. Check it for yourself. Have fun.

Face Book

Polyvore is one of my favorite sites. You basically can discover your own creativity here. It's a fashion site where you can mix and match dresses and accessories to create pretty looks. You will get rated and commented for the looks you create. There are lots of groups you can join and showcase your fashion talent. There's a clipper which you can use to import items from other websites to your polyvore personal page and use them to match with other items. They also have a place for interior d├ęcor on the side, which is great for interior design lovers. You'll love this site if you're or not a design student, an art and fashion lover. Here's my polyvore page.


Play with Online Photo Editors

Can't afford Photoshop? Well, not to worry. There are many nice people out there who have developed photo editors that have the magic of Photoshop but free of cost. I'm sure you have lots of old photographs that you would want to retouch. Or better yet, take those old pictures and turn them into beautiful artwork. For a list of some well known photo editors you should try out Click Here

Cool Dressup Game

Girls get ready!

Why should guys have all the fun when it comes to playing video games? Sure we girls don't like slaughtering demons or racing at 300 km/h, but we need some fun games too you see. So i found this great thing for us girls and that is dressup games. These are games where you can create sensational styles of your own, give makeovers and dressup dolls or celebs. Make friends and show your versatile styles. A site i love is where you can earn i-coins and shop for fashion clothing and accessories to dressup your avatar.



When was the last time you sent a greeting card? Don't remember? Well then, now's the right time.Send cards to family,friends and your loved one.It'll make them happy and kill spare time.I recommend these sites.

123greetings , Yahoo Greetings


Are you a food lover? If yes, then this is a fun task for you. The internet is filled with all sorts of recipes to choose from. Why not surf a little and note down your favorites? Here are some of the categories i prefer.

Chinese , Italian , Desserts , Low Calorie Recipes

How good are those Gadgets?

If you're a gadget guy/girl, you can kill that spare time by going through expert reviews about your next buy. Because, gadgets are expensive, so when you are spending that much money, you should also get its worth. Take for example, a Laptop. If you're going to buy your first Laptop, just read what others have to say first. This will help you in your final decision. A site I love for gadget reviews is Cnet. It is reliable and people from all over the world post their experiences about gadgets at this place. Visit Cnet

How do you like my lens? Please rate and leave your comments and suggestions. Thank you :).

      Interesting list...some familiar, but certainly many are new to me, but your page, while a great list, is slow to scroll, but that could be a squidoo issue, not yours. Thanks for your time.

      Creating lenses is indeed fun more especially when they are published! It just needs some research and creativity. I hope that does not bore you instead:) But when it becomes a habit, you'll surely love doing it on a regular basis.
