Reddit is an online community that operates through discussion forums called “subreddits.” These subreddits have subscribed users who submit content which can include articles, images, videos or almost anything online. Posts are then voted up or down by other users in the subreddit according to various criteria like authenticity, helpfulness, time since publication or number of initial received votes (the more upvotes received right after posting, the more other users are inclined to keep upvoting it).
