List25 combines the pursuit of interesting and intriguing facts with the innate human desire to rank and list things. From stereotypical cat pictures to crazy facts about the universe, every list is designed to help you kill time in the most efficient manner, all while giving you something to either laugh at or think about! Every weekday we release at least two new lists, one of which is a video.
While most sites publish top 10 lists or maybe even top 15, List25 was started because people wanted more. Top 25 lists are comprehensive; more in depth, and give more material to argue over (just read the comments). From its humble beginnings in 2011 up until now, List25 has served millions of hungry minds, has been mentioned in big publications like the New York Times, and is continuing to find new ways of consistently conciliating your curiosity.
We currently have over 2.3 million subscribers on our YouTube Channel, 448 thousand likes on Facebook, over 13.9 thousand followers on Twitter and over 23 thousand followers on Google +. You will also find us on Pinterest, Tumblr, Daily motion and Instagram (so be sure to follow us).
