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.
Stay informed about COVID-19 at r/coronavirus. Visit the Centers for Disease Control at cdc.gov for info.
Joining your favorite communities will create a constant, personalized feed of content like news headlines, fun stories, sports talk, games, viral pics, top memes, and videos.
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.

Whether you love movies, kittens, science, kittens, politics, or kittens, Reddit’s official app puts all this (plus kittens) at your fingertips. With a colorful and intuitive layout, it’s easy to browse and post to “the front page of the Internet” across thousands of subreddits that cater to virtually every area of interest. Search for communities that line up with your hobbies; filter posts by posting time, hotness, and more; and get a breakdown of your own Redditing history to see where you reaped all that sweet, sweet karma. (Protip: you can’t go wrong with pictures of—you guessed it—kittens.)
The whole app is put together very well with a good system of rewarding the best comments by giving them more exposure by bumping to the top and the “Karma points” is like no other media app that I used. The minimalistic interface of the main page is easily navigated as well. It’s all great, BUT, the political subreddits that are so called “neutral” (/r politics /r worldnews) are 98% left leaning where the posts are predominantly liberal. Due to the demographics of Reddit(large young population/ academics/tech community/ etc) any opinion that questions their narrative or simply doesn’t agree, gets downvoted by the entire community, disproportionally downvoting your comment/post until you have negative karma points inevitably by stating your mind in “neutral” subreddits. There needs to be algorithms that pick up on these patterns that counter balance the bias or remove politics from the app altogether and create a political Reddit separate from Reddit. This will solve the problem of the echo chamber style subreddits and removed censorship from this free speech platform. That is all.
I understand the concept of rules, to prevent harassment and such, and to keep a friendly environment for people to share and discuss things. Sure. But the rules seem like they require a college course to understand and navigate. Say you need help with a build in a video game. So you post and see if someone more experienced can help you (the purpose of the app right?) and if you post to the “wrong sub” then all you’ll get is an admin telling you you they aren’t going to help you or that it’s been posted before. It’s frustrating because a sub with 500,000 members it’s gunna be hard to find the problem being solved before. Sometimes I’m the more experienced guy and I roll through a post giving answers to questions. But if there’s 2 questions in one thread that haven’t been answered, then I can’t answer but one every 8 minutes (to avoid spam of course) but it hinders the point of the whole thing, you know? So the rules and etiquette are unwritten and unspoken and seem convoluted, but are enforced with impunity and make it difficult to fulfill the purpose of the app. Kind of ridiculous. Other than that, it’s one of the top places to find answers to your questions. Also full of entertaining posts to kill time. Thanks for listening to my TED talk
