Social Media and Apps 

Reddit is a social networking and news platform where members share content, such as text posts or direct links. It functions as an online bulletin board, where different topics are organised as ‘sub-reddits’.

You can download Reddit as an app on a device or visit the website online.

The idea of Reddit is that the best content (or most popular) will make it to the front page of the platform.

Core Functions

Age Restrictions

Reddit rules (Terms and Conditions of Service) require users be 13 or older to use the website, but users can enter a fake date of birth to bypass these requirements.
