Reddit is not Digg

Pre-script: I’ve written about Digg earlier and I’m too lazy to find the link. It’s lazy weather out here in Bangalore.

What is reddit? Glad you asked because here’s what their FAQ says in response:

A source for what’s new and popular on the web — personalized for you. We want to democratize the traditional model by giving editorial control to the people who use the site, not those who run it. Your votes train a filter, so let reddit know what you liked and disliked, because you’ll begin to be recommended links filtered to your tastes. All of the content on reddit is from users who are rewarded for good submissions (and punished for bad ones) by their peers; you decide what appears on your front page and which submissions rise to fame or fall into obscurity.

Reddit is similar to Digg but it loads faster, and seems to have less technology stuff than Digg. It’s got a little bit of an overlap with Digg but not a lot.

I visit the site every day and always get something interesting to read. I’m a non-participatory user (I know I’m bad) but hey, at least I visit the site. Now, you go do the same.

  1. Don’t worry, we heart the leechers just as much as the top-karma redditors. Heck, you’re visiting every day, we’ve got nothing to gripe about.

    thanks for the shoutout, glad to hear you’re enjoying reddit,
