What is Reddit? Reddit is where topics or ideas are arranged in communities. Start off with what you like and go from there. There are 100K active ones to choose from.

Earn fake Internet points (called Karma) by sharing your passion for books, movies, video games, sports, TV shows, music and technology with millions of people who share your interests.
Or just browse what millions of other people are posting and talking about.

For a Social Media Professional, My Favorite Place To Be in 2021
On a personal level I’m so burnt out on social networks, but Reddit has managed to go from being kind of scary and full of trolls to being (imo) one of the best places on the internet. By joining niche communities you can really find any hyper specific group of people and (for the most part!) people are fairly nice to complete strangers! I suppose if you want you can spend time on the popular/top general pages, but I mostly don’t. I like a feed that I really have control over myself vs being much more at the mercy of whatever ad driven algorithms.
The combo of dedicated volunteer moderators, strong (enforced) community policies from the brand and the ability to build in auto moderation tools has really made Reddit into a success. And don’t get me wrong, there are ads here too, but it is generally not intrusive. Most brands advertising there right now are still taking the time to understand the space and audience.
To my social media and advertising peers I say: how about we make the choice not to mess this one up too?
Used to be a great app, a social media site that didn’t feel like social media. Now, there’s an ad on every other screen you see, some comment sections even include ads, there are constantly pop ups asking you to visit the AppStore to rate the app, constantly pop ups trying to ‘engage the user’ more (we get it, you’re making money off of us, no need to shove it down our throat), “you should join this community! Follow this thing for more posts!”, Reddit even now sends you direct messages telling you to go ‘check out’ these hot and rising posts.... only you’ll get about two of those a day, for all of time. I stoped checking my messages because instead of comment replies and upvote updates, it was just random “go look at this post we think you may like!”. It’s no longer about kittens, it’s about “how many ads can we shove at them to make a profit before they start leaving the app en mass?”
Two years ago, Reddit prided itself on being the exact opposite of that. Of being the place that was DIFFERENT, in a good way. Now it just feels like a reskinned Instagram/Facebook, and even feels like Reddit is taking some direction from them.
It’s gone from a place to explore the internet, to just one more app that’s more concerned with making a pretty penny off your use, and by gosh if they gotta violate your privacy and rights to make that buck then so be it!
