The front page of the internet

Formerly known as “the front page of the internet”, Reddit is an online forum platform with over 130,000 sub-forums and communities. The platform allows registered users, called Redditors, to post content. Each post is open to the entire Reddit community to vote upon, either by down- or upvotes. The most popular posts are featured directly on the front page. Subreddits are available by category and Redditors can follow selected subreddits relevant to their interest and also control what content they see on their custom front page. Some of the most popular subreddits are r/AskReddit or r/AMA – the “Ask Me Anything” format. According to the company, Reddit hosted 1,800 AMAs in 2018, with a wide range of topics and hosts. One of the most popular Reddit AMA of 2020 by number of upvotes was by Bill Gates on the topic of the COVID-19 response of the Gates Foundation.
