This website is amazing! Reddit is a community-based website where users can submit links, images, or even questions and stories to other users.
When I first saw it, I was going to pass it off as just another website where people post things like funny pictures or news article headlines. But what really got me hooked is how much power the community has over which links make it to the front page. Links can be upvoted all the way up to the front page or downvoted into obscurity. But that only the surface of the website. Most of the enjoyment comes from reading comments and user discussions that often stray hilariously off topic and contain multiple movie quotes and inside jokes.
Fascinated with the way the site works, I became a member and was even more amazed to discover how much the Reddit community really is... a community. Users rally to support each other, and even strangers, such as when one person found an invitation to a lonely old man's birthday party. The posting made the top of the front page and a large number of people sent cards and letters, wishing the 90 year old man happy birthday.
So, Reddit isn't just a website, or even a community. It might be at first, but eventually it will consume you, and you'll find yourself checking it multiple times a day, while at work, while at home, maybe even while you're eating dinner, because the internet is always changing, and you'll want to know what's new online.
