The best overall websites of 2012 include sites that let us waste time, get informed and generally be entertained. Some of the websites included among the best are social, letting us connect with friends, loved ones and, in some cases, complete strangers. Other sites, like Ranker (hey!) allowed us to make great lists like, well, this one! Be sure to vote for those websites that you believe were truly the best of the best in 2012, and vote down any sites that you didn't visit and/or didn't like. Also, please feel free to add to this list, because it's by no means complete.

If you're one who likes to regularly post your thoughts, then you'll no doubt agree that websites like Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Tumblr represent the best websites of 2012. If you're super crafty and always on the lookout for new, fun ideas, well then, Pinterest is probably right up your (beautifully decorated, impeccably designed) alley.

Shopping fanatics might say that Amazon.com and eBay offered the best opportunities to feed their habit, while foodies might argue that Yelp was tops in 2012. For those who enjoy keeping up with their favorite movies and music, websites like Spotify, Pitchfork, Rotten Tomatoes and certainly Netflix would top the list. Don't agree? Vote them down. Totally agree? Well then, vote on up and, if you're so inclined, make your very own Best Overall Websites of 2012 list by reranking. And again, this list is definitely not finished, so feel free to add your own favorite websites for all of us to enjoy.
