$1.1 billion spent by web giant - but why? Here's all you need to know
Why you'll love it: achieving goals is easier and more fun with a support network of others doing the same things.
43 Things allows users to create a kind of 'bucket list' of personal goals that they want to achieve in their lifetimes, as wide and diverse as 'fall in love', 'learn a foreign language', 'go to Las Vegas' or 'fly a plane'. It's instantly addictive, starting you off by tasking you to pick just three things that you want to do with the rest of your life - but you'll soon add other people's suggestions and have lots more. You share your stories and progress towards these goals with others, and feel a genuine sense of achievement when you can cross something off your list.
