Like Reddit, 4chan and 9gag, it's a website full of idiots and probably isn't worth your time.
Person 1: Did you check out that funny new meme on imgur?

Person 2: Go away.

Guy 1: "Dude, what is an Imgur?"
Guy 2: "The same head-up-its-own-arse site as Reddit, but at least you get a funny picture with every inane post"

Imgur is, by far, the greatest procrastination site on the Internet, where you share and rate images and GIFs. With content uploaded everyday, where you can spend your life mindlessly laughing and reading, it's just the greatest. It is often compared to Reddit, but just solely with images.

Imgur's comment section is usually hilarious, until you get to the comment section that says "Bad comments"

These comments have more down votes than up votes, and are usually hate, spam, ect.
Bro 1: Argh man, this studying is so boring!

Bro 2: Use Imgur!

Bro 1: Ok *click* Wow!

Bro 2: Can I watch with you?

Bro 1: Yep

*Both randomly puke rainbows*

An image sharing website where cats and other adorable animals are the most common subject along with the occasional inspiring/moving/tear-jerking photos that the Imgur community feels are worth sharing. Images are given with select captions and the community then vies for "upvotes" to reach the coveted "Top Caption" status and thus attain the ever-coveted Notoriety rating of Glorious.
1) Imgur: it's better than 9gag

2) A: Where can I find gratuitous amounts of cat images?
B: Imgur, duh.

3)I should be studying for my tests, but I've got time to check Imgur for just a few minutes. (Common misconception as Imgur has proven to be more addictive than Cocaine to the "Internet People" that inhabit its realm.)
