Reddit in the United States

In December 2019, Reddit accounted for over less than one percent of social media website traffic in the United States, still ranking the platform one of the leading social networks based on visits. Founded in 2005, Reddit is a discussion website which enables users to aggregate news by posting links and let other users vote and comment on them. There are thousands of subforums, called subreddits, on a wide range of topics available. One of the most popular subreddits is the AMA (“Ask Me Anything”), where celebrities, public figures or people in unique positions post threads that allow other Reddit users to ask them anything. In 2019, Bill Gates returned for his seventh AMA and the post generated over 110,000 upvotes, making it the most popular AMA of the year.
