The popularity of a particular social media site comes and goes. Expect for Reddit, which is still one of the most popular sites today. It’s easy to see why, too.
Reddit is a great place to catch up on various discussions and read about breaking news. Yet, despite the popularity over the years, Reddit is somewhat still a hidden gem. That’s because if you don’t have an account on the social media site, you are missing out on several features. By signing up for an account, users can discover more, like obscure subreddits and more close-knit discussion threads, which is where the excitement lives.
Just as it’s easy to get lost in a Reddit thread, it’s also pretty easy to register for an account on the site. You are not even required to give your email address; create a username and password and start exploring. That said, if you don’t associate an email address with the account, there are restrictions on the places you can visit on the site. So, if you want to get the full Reddit experience, it’s best first to associate your email address with your account. Don’t worry, however. Reddit rarely sends emails to users, thus meaning your inbox will not see a flood of notifications from the site.
After you have made a Reddit account, you can find the topics you want to see on your homepage. There are thousands of subreddits on the site, and you can subscribe and unsubscribe to them, with your favourite subscriptions making up your home page.
Sometimes with Reddit, you have to work to find exciting subreddits. Typically, users will start with a topic on Google and then look it up, followed by the word Reddit. Doing so will introduce you to more threads, and who knows, you may even find yourself getting hooked to Reddit during that time.
Remember, however, that as attractive as Reddit can be, it’s easy to lose track of time on the website, so explore cautiously.
