The Truth About Reddit

Reddit was one of Y Combinator’s first successful start-ups back in 2005. Now, the site, which appropriately bills itself as the front page of the Internet, has become one of, if not, the most influential sites in the world because it’s a community, but also “the crib sheet for weary bloggers who need to hit page-view quotas,” as Simon Dumenco so aptly puts it.

Basically, if you read it on Gawker or BuzzFeed, chances are it was on Reddit the day before. If you are watching a goofy video on the local news or Good Morning America that probably means it was on Reddit several days ago.
