Reddit is a social media forum site where users share thoughts, opinions, and links to other content on a wide range of topics.

It consists of over 1 million different themed pages called subreddits where users post about specific topics ranging from Fortnite to veganism to OITNB to unboxing videos to bread stapled to trees to Joe Biden. Pretty much anything imaginable has its own subreddit. Be warned, many subreddits are NSFW, but they are usually labeled as such.

Within the site, users can post, comment, and “upvote,” or “downvote” existing posts.
