A subreddit is a specific category of links about a general topic within the social link sharing site reddit.com. At its core, reddit has the same exact purpose as the much more popular competitor digg, except the news tends to flow a bit more freely and allows for the most active members of several communities to dictate what gets shared.
After about seven months as a user of reddit, I’ve found it far superior to other news sharing sites because of the point listed above. After four months, I decided to create my own community within the community that would support the efforts of the journalistic revolution brought on by the current wave of social technology. I called it Journolution (yes, a bit corny but then again, most things start off that way.)
So if you’d like to share a link about tech in relation to journalism, please subscribe and join the discussion.
