One of the bad parts about being in social media professionally is that I often have to travel to conferences. For this reason, I missed the best novice explanation of Reddit that I’ve ever seen. It’s actually quite brilliant.
The front page of the internet has its strengths and its weaknesses. This video gives a relatively unbiased view, pointing to both sides. With astonishing numbers behind the site and a community that is arguably the most interactive of any community on the web, this video might be enough to make you stare into the abyss to see what stares back at you.
As the narrator describes it at the end, “You’ll wonder how you ever interneted without it.”
I’ve been on Reddit for several years now and I couldn’t imagine where I would be if I hadn’t used it until now.
