    Sometimes people show me memes that was stolen from reddit and they wonder why I never laugh, it's because I have already seen it like last week.

    My only complaint is that some of the explanations of what reddit is are more explanations of what social media is as a whole, and a lot of the things listed that reddit does are also things you can find in many other places, such as tumblr for example. Tumblr is terrible -- and reddit can be too -- but tumblr is made up only of blogs and ideas and concepts you are interested in, and you can follow tags which are essentially like sub reddits. And if you're using facebook correctly (ie: not adding your family and coworkers or highschool friends, but instead meme pages and websites you care about) you can have a custom timeline of only the things you're interested in as well. This is pretty basic stuff.

    Reddit is indeed good. If it weren't for the ton of assholes you encounter in the comments.

    The old optimistic view of Reddit. Now it's universally regarded as a huge circlejerk, except for some subreddits that are still neat.

    Is reddit good though? My parents (mainly my dad) says reddit is toxic and full of porn. I know it isn’t and I know what subreddits to stay away from based on RU-clip videos about reddit. Is there any way I could persuade my dad to let me get reddit?

    Used Reddit for 2 months and then quit when I discovered almost every subreddit is an echo-chamber,it's like their users have a hivemind or some shit,you could easily tell what their opinion will be on any given topic and you WILL get either banned or down-voted to oblivion if you disagree with said opinion.Now I only use Reddit for technical help and maybe music recommendations that's the most use I'll get from that cancerous cesspool

    I watched half the video, went and downloaded reddit, and enjoyed it for 2 years, then just now I watched the rest, and when it said “you’ll wonder how you ever interneted without it”, that’s true, reddit is an amazing place, almost everyone is so supportive and great! And I say most because all social media sites have a dark side. Reddit truest changed my life forever. When I have a dark time in my life, I turn to reddit and it helps me a lot, everyone is so great, and unless you search for it, you won’t see anything bad! Thank you cgp grey for introducing me to reddit, your a great human being


    Do NOT ever advertise with Reddit! They are supposed to charge you monthly, or when a certain threshold is reached. In my case they delivered my ads for just 19 USD within 3 weeks, but charged me 20 USD every week. For no reason, with no explanation, not even with a reply to my support inquiry. This company is the worst for advertising. I found other people testing Reddit ads with the same result, that they paid hundreds of dollars on ads for no leads. A total waste of money. And the support is ridiculous. Because my concern is related to billing, the general support will not get involved with my problem at all. But the billing department has no email address, and is not responding on my concerns when I use their online contact form.
