With over a trillion URL’s indexed in Google, it can be hard to keep up with all of the new and old sites that are around. The internet is full of fun and interesting sites. Whether it be new sites or ones that are standing the test of time, it can be hard to divide your time between them all. Below is a list of 5 sites to watch in 2011.

1. Kickstarter


Starting in 2009, Kickstarter has become the biggest platform for film, music, food, design, art, technology, publishing, and other creative fields to get funded by people who pledge their own money for the cause. Even though it started in 2009, it really gained momentum in 2010 and is expected to continue to grow even bigger this year. This website has helped hundreds of projects come to life from the millions that were raised in 2010.

2. OpenLeaks

 


In 2011, OpenLeaks will more than likely be the new WikiLeaks. It will enable media to do the same as WikiLeaks, except that OpenLeaks wants to be the intermediary in between whistleblowers and other organizations. The site will be used more as a tech service for news organizations. This will make it easier for their readers to submit their own leaks to their own sites.

Natter launched in mid January of this year. It is a simple website where users can video chat with each other in a simple and easy layout. It is a place to meet new friends, or stay connected to current ones. One very cool feature that Natter has is the ability to login via your Facebook account.
Natter also has built-in safeguards. This makes the experience more enjoyable without any worry. All you need to access the site is a Facebook profile and a working webcam. Once you are set up, you will “Natter” with someone during a one minute chat. After that, you are able to add them as a friend on Facebook if you choose. Users will also be able to rate each other using “Natter Points” corresponding to how fun and nice the other video chatter was.

3. Klout

As the rise of social marketing continues to climb over traditional marketing styles; business will want to look at building up their reputation through influential people. Klout is just the tool that they will use to do it with.

4. Hipmunk
