Complex's Best of 2009: The Top 25 Websites

#5: MISS INFO
URL: www.missinfo.tv
TYPE: Hip-Hop News/Gossip
• How did Miss Info manage to carve a niche for herself in between all the celebrity gossip and rap blogs? By focusing on the little tidbits overlooked by the ravenous blog machines and mixing in—GASP—some actually reporting. Bloggers, take note.

#4: NAH RIGHT
URL: www.nahright.com
TYPE: Hip-Hop
• Despite some new competitors and imitators, Eskay's homebase remained the place to get all your hip-hop news and media, with a steady assist from the brilliant New Music Cartel alliance. They even expanded past their laptops and hosted a few events during CMJ and SXSW. Guess you can't blog forever.

#3: FACEBOOK
URL: www.facebook.com
TYPE: Social Networking
• Sure, they were in the news more for people's initial outrage over the changes in their design and privacy policies, but even with all the added rules and adoption of a Twitter like interface, Mark Zuckerberg's brainchild held its own by delving into new territories like, hosting the live chat during the 2009 Inauguration.

#2: COMPLEX
URL: www.complex.com
TYPE: Men's Lifestyle
• Allow us a moment to pat our own backs, if you will. If you didn't see us in Ad Age (why would you?), know this: our relentless stream of witty, irreverent humor, spot on fashion advice and coverage of everything else you find interesting has been paying off big time. And it's all thanks to you. We're obviously doing something right, or you wouldn't be here reading this list.

#1: TWITTER
URL: www.twitter.com
TYPE: Social Networking/Life
• If it happened in 2009, it was on Twitter. Only in it's third year of operation, the social networking site that was on the tips of everyone's tongue not only hosted each and every important conversation, it was the conversation. It gave a megaphone to everyone with something to say and scared the shit out of traditional media institutions. All in all a good year.
