In this modern world, It became highly impossible to live with out Internet. This Internet is a collection of websites. In recent years many websites have influenced us in one way or the other, but some of them have made such a huge impact that they have changed the world forever. This impact not only changed the world but also the lifestyle of people living in it. So, here we have collected the top 10 websites that made a huge change in this world.

10. WikiLeaks


This website is not that big YET, it is slowly changing the world and very soon it will that as big as the websites below. You have the media telling you lies, people giving their opinions but THIS site, is giving you proof and the TRUTH.

9. craigslist.org


Craigslist is the biggest community for free online classfied ads. A person who wants something done or wants to offer services. Craigslist is the first place where he would go.

8. Amazon


The biggest online shopping center with new and old items available to your but a simple click of a button. People who start shopping with amazon find it hard to buy things from some place else.

7. Twitter


There was a time when twitter was just a website that no one really knew about, but then suddenly, something changed and everyone was talking about twitter and TODAY, a person without a twitter account is considered to be...well, not alive. Ranging from celebs, to politicians to scientists...everyone is on twitter. Most businesses have twitter accounts as well to be more interactive.

6. Napster


You might have gotten a glimpse of what Napster was in Social Network movie but the website really changed the music industry. Many similar websites were developed after Napster, but none were as successful.

5. ebay


This website completely revolutionized the online shopping and bidding industry. Infact, ebay was the first one to bring this concept. Now, ebay is like a HUGE shopping mall with lots of little stores where you can bid on items you like and win.

4. Youtube


Watching videos is always better than reading text and that is exactly what youtube knew. It was also said to be one of the greatest inventions of 2006. Youtube is now owned by Google, so being with the biggest website on the web can't hurt.

3. Facebook


Many people are now familiar with the Facebook story, because of the social network movie. Something that just started off as a site to connect students of a university with each other became a tool that everyone using the internet uses. There are other social networking sites, but the amount of traffic that facebook gets is not comparable.

2. Wikipedia


The free encyclopedia ranks at number two on our list. Although professionally, wikipedia's credibility is questionable, for a common man, the information that you get from this site is second to none.

1. Google


Who knew that a website would become so popular that its name (which actually meant nothing) be recognized as a word. Some people say = 'If knowledge is power, then google is god'. Kind of going too far but you can see that effect google has had on our world.
