Reddit is a website where people share links to articles, media and other things on the web. The website is organized into "subreddits", communities within the Reddit community to discuss certain topics or to look at specific content. The posted links can be voted on, and the links with most votes are displayed on the front page of the website. Reddit was founded in 2005 by Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian, and is also available in other languages. Commonly used for memes. People in the Reddit community call themselves "redditors".[4] Some examples of subreddits are /r/Pics, /r/Aww, /r/FakeHistory, /r/WritingPrompts, and /r/todayilearned. Subreddits are directed towards all sort of things, like educational, funny, cute pictures of animals, and more.
