Reddit has been in the news a lot recently, due to the GameStop share price boom that was largely driven by an investment forum on the site. So what exactly is Reddit?
Reddit is a hugely popular online forum. It allows users to create their own forums and chat groups. Registered users can talk about anything and there are forums for everything from news, history and travel through to business, technology and investing. There forums are called subreddits. A subreddit is basically a micro-community within Reddit and is based on a certain topic. There are around 140,000 active subreddits on the site.
Users can read and participate in all of them freely, except private Reddits, which require admission from the users, who have set up and manage that particular forum.
