  • Hello everyone, my name is Romano and I will present you reddit which you might already know. Reddit is actually a contraction of the term ‘I (already) read it’ which you will automatically say alot to your friends if you spend time on reddit as you will see a lot of stuff happening in the internet as one of the first
  • gateway to the world of interesting things going on right now in the internetGoogle is the place where you go to search for something specific Reddit is the place where you go to see things which other people already found
  • SOPA = Stop Online Piracy Act
  • Mainpage lists only the stuff of subreddits you followexamples: sports, politics, online games, programmingreference to wikia from the exercisesModerators & rules apply only for specific subreddit
  • Links ar tip of icebergDiscussions are the true heartDiscussions are way more open as people are anonymous though it also means that not all the private thoughts are beautifulAnonymity not mandatory
  • Exmaple of http://www.reddit.com/r/random_acts_of_pizza
  • Constantly updated list of things which are intresting according to thousands of usersNo editors meaning you don’t know what you’ll read but it will definitly be intresting as thousands of other people already voted that it is something interesting to see.
  • Reddit is not weird by itself bur rather because of the person using itReddit becomes what the user already is
