CanYouActually.com is a website that has a clear purpose, and that’s to provide entertainment for people.

Behind CanYouActually.com is a team that tirelessly scours the web for interesting and entertaining content.

If we find a piece of content that passes through our screening process, then it will land into one of our categories.

There’s always something fun and entertaining in the web. To make it easier for our viewers, we categorize our content into art, design, travel, culture, humor and so much more.

We even have a section dedicated to in-depth product reviews.

Example: Best blender for smoothies 2017

Example: Best memory foam mattress 2017

While CanYouActually.com may be geared towards entertaining content, we are still picky in our selection process. Aside from being entertaining, we usually filter our content by asking another question – Is it inspiring?

And, that’s what makes CanYouActually.com unique as we are not fond of just posting senseless entertainment.

It seems that our stringent selection process helped us gain success at some levels as CanYouActually.com has already been mentioned in some worthy publications like GameInformer, CollegeHumor, Distractify, Little Things, Medium, Cracked, Design Taxi, Adweek, AOL, Buzzfeed, India times, Nerdist, Wikipedia, and the New York Times.

In fact, one of CanYouActually.com’s posts earned a spot in the “Top 10 Facebook Posts of 2015.”

We, at CanYouActually.com, are all grateful for all of the support and that’s why we decided to give back. As of the moment, CanYouActually.com is sponsoring a scholarship.
