Reddit is a web-based forum where users share links to news, photos, and videos, as well as engage in social media-style discussion threads.  Founded in 2005, Reddit has become one of the most visited websites in the world.  The platform is set up as a variety of user-generated community boards called “subreddits.”  These subreddits cover a wide variety of popular culture, current event, and special interest subjects.
