5 Reasons to Join Reddit Today
5 Reasons to Join Reddit Today
Now that you are aware of the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to Reddit, we are going to posit why you should still join this amazing social media market today. As the dark horse in a race of social power, there are many reasons why Reddit can totally change your personal and professional life.
Here are just a few:
1. Research and Decision Making:
Let’s say you need to make an important decision. Maybe it’s to choose between colleges, or maybe it’s to find the real source of an article. You don’t know what to pick and you just can’t find what you need on Google. That’s where Reddit comes into the picture. Reddit is teeming with subreddits that have the information you need and desire. There’s a subreddit for everything. Maybe you want to buy a new book and you’re down to two options. Someone, somewhere in the world, has had the same dilemma and weighed the pros and cons. You can read that conversation and those comments to help you make the same decision.
This can be applied to business and professional development as well. You can learn more about new skills, which selections or options are better for your business, and so forth. Reddit is like a personalized stream of consciousness that is happy to help you.
2. Learning Something New:
As we just mentioned, you can learn something brand new on Reddit. If you want to know more about quantum mechanics, the meaning of life, the start of the universe, or even the different critters in the ocean we’ve never discovered before, you can go learn about it on Reddit. There are lots of experts, news junkies, and researchers on Reddit that will present you with verifiable links that go right to the source of the information as well. Then you can read comments that expand upon the already discussed topic to really get an in-depth understanding of the new information.
3. Join a Community of People Like Yourself:
Maybe you are absolutely obsessed with Lord of the Rings, or maybe you just want to talk about the Latin words that appeared in the base of all Harry Potter spells. Your friends and family in real life make fun of you for this. But, there are other people like you in the world, and they are on Reddit, in a special subreddit where you can finally be yourself. You can interact with other people that share your passions, helping you to feel less alone in the world.
4. Fake News Proof:
Thanks to the aggressive Reddit culture of not tolerating anything that is fake, false, spammed, or self promotional, almost every piece of fake news is zapped from the site before moderators need to even do anything. With down voting, users will quickly flag any information or any links that are exaggerating the truth. Unlike other social media sites that struggle with fake news every day, Reddit is the closest thing you can use to finding the truth. There is something to be said for that.
5. AMA for Brand and Personal Interviews:
AMAs are a great way to promote products, businesses, and services without actually directly promoting them. Plus, there is something you have to offer the world of Reddit, and allowing them to ask you whatever they want will help you feel more connected to the platform. It’s a great place for marketers, even if they aren’t outright welcomed on there today. Test your creative marketing abilities and benefit from the traffic that is naturally occurring on Reddit today.
