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.

Ratings and Reviews
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. (Pro tip: 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.
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!
