Reddit - www.reddit.com
Reddit is a social media, news aggregation, web content rating and discussion website that allows members to submit content, such as text posts or direct links, vote up or down submissions to determine their position on the site's pages. The submission with the most positive votes will appear on the front page or at the top of a category. These categories are called "subreddits" with a variety of topics from news, science, games, movies, music, food to extremely explicit subjects. Reddit's aim is to help people discover places where they can be their true selves and empower the community to flourish.
As of 2018, Reddit had 542 million monthly visitors (234 million unique users).

Reddit is a collection of entries submitted by its registered users (or Redditors), essentially a bulletin board system. The content is divided into numerous categories (or subreddits). A set of 50 default subreddits is visible on the front page for new users and those who browse the site without logging in to an account.
When posts (link or text posts) are submitted to a subreddit, Redditors can vote for or against them (upvote/downvote). Each subreddit has its own front page that shows latest posts and highly rated submissions. Redditors can write comments about the posts and reply to other comments. The comments could be either upvoted or downvoted.
The site's general front page shows a combination of the highest-rated posts out of all the subreddits that a Redditor subscribes to.
Reddit's logo is a line-drawing of an alien named "Snoo".
Reddit can be considered as a newspaper stand and subreddits are the newspapers or magazines. A subreddit has its community, with a specific set of members and rules. You can subscribe any subreddit to keep posted with any news of that subreddit.
After making an account, new users are automatically subscribed to a set of default subreddits that are highly popular communities. Users are free to unsubscribe from any of these subreddits as well as subscribe a new one.
Each subreddit has a sidebar on the right, providing Redditors the details on that subreddit. There are links to make a post, to subscribe or to unsubscribe that subreddit. The numbers of its subscribers and people who are currently browsing are also published. At the bottom of that subreddit screen, there are some rules, guidelines, relevant information and links to other similar subreddits that users can subscribe.
It is free of charge to register a Reddit account, even without any email verification.
After logging in, Redditors can make posts, comments and even vote for them. Redditors can also create their own subreddit for any topic they want.
Users will have "post karma" and "comment karma" after submitting text posts, link posts, and comments. Karma is a point system that lets you know how your submissions or comments are doing. The more karma your post has gained, the more people have upvoted it. Normally, the post with a higher karma will have an interesting topic or content to the whole community. Your karma is shown on the top right of your page. Please note that self-posts earn you no karma. Only comments and link-posts do.
