This final stage of the year serves as a reflection to see everything that happened in the past 12 months and reddit was not far behind, as it has just published a report that shows what is most popular on the platform.
reddit is a great place for users to come together to discuss a specific topic and there are tons of communities. In 2021 the number of communities already surpassed the 100,000 active subreddits mark worldwide.
In this year, until last November 9, 366 million publications were registered, which meant an increase of 19% compared to 2020. In addition, there were 2.3 billion comments and 46 billion votes in favor.
