A peer-to-peer pastebin can be the foundation of any things
We can make things like Imgur but peer to peer, TikTok but peer to peer, Tenor/and other memes sites in peer to peer mode. Peer to peer is also really good for realtime apps like video/voice chat and things that need to sync together(google docs peer to peer?).

IPFS give you the foundation to do many Peer to Peer projects. Especially on the web thanks to js-ipfs. There is already a database build on IPFS called orbit-DB and realtime applications can be built on IPFS using PubSub. And yes, there is already a "Google Drive" for IPFS.
