I loooove reddit. I’m such a huge fan of that site. I always call it the best site that nobody talks about. I waste about an hour a day there, and if I wasn’t distracted by the daily grind, I could easily be on there much longer. Out of all the social media sites, reddit is the only one that gives me the warm fuzzies like Twitter does. The difference is, I’m part of the 90% of reddit visitors who never engage or vote anything up or down. I just read all the posts, look at all the hilarious pictures, and tweet the killer content I find.
Reddit is a very unique platform because there really is a sense of community and support amongst the members. They are witty, fun, always leave interesting comments, and are always there for each other. It kind of reminds me of the old digg, only with nice people instead of dickheads. Opps… Did I just type that? If I had to choose two social networking sites to be a part of, I would dump Facebook, Google+, and all the other silly ones and just choose Twitter and reddit.
The people over at Sortable are also big fans of reddit, and they put together this fun infographic timeline that will show you everything you pretty much ever wanted to know about that site. Looking at this, it’s easy to understand why reddit is so special to so many people. One thing on here that really surprised me was as of last month, reddit hit 1.6 billion page views a month, with the average person staying on the site 15 minutes and 40 seconds. Whoa! That’s awesome!
