What native Chinese websites should I be aware of for content?

I would like to start really diving into the Chinese side of the internet, but I have no idea where to start. I'm realizing that I totally take for granted the ease with which I navigate the internet in English. I know where all the major hotspots are -- Reddit especially is a huge go-to for content, but I also know where to go for news and the like as well. 

 

What websites should I be aware of for consuming content in Chinese? I recently stumbled across 163.com, which seems to be quite good. Does anyone have any other recommendations?  Websites that have a good spread of content? News websites? Forums? Websites that blend all three?

You should take a look at this ongoing thread. Lots of good suggestions.

These 3 fit the bill (all mainland China & simplified characters). The first 2 are newspapers but with a good spread of content and many interesting articles besides the news headlines. Both are free of obnoxious ads, well written, and easy to navigate

This one is the Chinese equivalent of Life Magazine. The magazine itself is behind a paywall, but the site has many free articles, and older numbers of the magazine are free

As a native Chinese, I have a few recommendations.

1 Create a WeChat account and search for topics in which you are interested. You will find lots of official accounts, we call them 公众号. There are many amazing ones and you can read lots of stuff in depth.

2 Download a few apps, like 今日头条、知乎、微信读书. If you work for Tech companies, I recommend 虎嗅 and 36氪. They are really helpful.

 

Feel free to let me know if you have further questions.
