Welcome back to another edition of In Case You Missed It, our monthly retrospective look at all the amazing happenings in the Imgur community. We’ll cover highlights, heartwarming stories, original creations, and updates from the peeps here at Imgur HQ from Imgurians.
let’s get started!
This month we asked the Imgur community to let their wanderlust run wild and share their favorite travel spots. Imgurians posted hundreds showing places they’ve wanted to visit for the first time or want to return to. These pictures of places around the world filled our feeds with gorgeous countryside and cultures. For some, their dream destination wasn’t extravagant or far from home. Between local landmarks, mountain ranges, beaches and more, we’re glad to have found places that were special to you.

This month we held our second annual Wallpaper Gallery. Wallpapers may seem like an insignificant set of pixels, but we think they are much more than that. We see them every day on our devices, and they represent something we hold dear. For this year’s Wallpaper Gallery, we saw a 2.5X increase in participation compared to last year. Millions of people visited the gallery to see the valuables of other Imgurians. From giant stars to enchanting landscapes or pictures of our furry friends, there were plenty of wallpaper-worthy posts to display.
