How important is Reddit?

Reddit is going public next year.

If you haven’t started yet, here is one way to begin:

  1. Think twice about your username

  2. Start by joining the OG subs

  3. Find your niche subs using Map of Reddit

1. About your username

Do not use your real name like me. Reddit is pseudonymous, which fosters authenticity. A good talk from @alexisohanian about this here

2. Start with OG subs

My favorites:

  • r/AskReddit is the place to ask and answer thought-provoking questions.

  • r/TIFU means Today I Fucked Up

  • r/explainlikeimfive - forum and archive on the internet for layperson-friendly explanations

3. Find your communities with the map - mine is r/OldSkaters
