If you spend a lot of time online, chances are you've heard of Reddit. The site bills itself as the "front page of the internet," and that's not an empty boast: As of this writing, Reddit is the seventh most popular site in the United States, according to Alexa, and the 18th worldwide. So, what exactly is Reddit? Essentially, it's a massive collection of forums where people can share news and content or comment on other people's posts. Here's everything you need to know.
Reddit is broken up into more than a million communities known as "subreddits," each of which covers a different topic. The name of a subreddit begins with / r /, which is part of the URL that Reddit uses. For example, / rba is a subreddit where people talk about the National Basketball Association, while / r / boardgames is a subreddit for people to discuss board games. Those are straightforward subreddits, but they can get weird, such as / r / birdswitharms, a subreddit devoted to pictures of birds ... with arms.
If you're just looking at Reddit for the first time, you may be a bit confused by what you are seeing, so here's a quick rundown. The homepage (or "front page") shows you various posts that are currently trending on the site, pulled from a variety of subreddits. You can sort these posts by clicking one of the icons on the ribbon menu located underneath the Create Post text box. These icons will sort the posts by Best, Hot, New, Top, or Rising.
