Reddit is a social news site with the slogan: Voice in advance, voices from the Internet. Users (also called Redditors) can browse and submit links to content on the Internet or publish their own original posts or posts about user-submitted texts. Other users can vote for high or low scores on the published links, and links with outstanding scores will be placed on the homepage. In addition, users can comment on the published link and reply to other commenters, thus forming an online community.
Reddit is one of the most popular social media platforms, and it is a massive collection of forums where people can share news, links, photos, create posts, or interact with people in the comments section.
