Reddit is a social news website, owned by Condé Nast Digital, a subsidiary of Advance Magazine Publishers Inc. Users (also called redditors) can browse and have the option to submit links to content on the Internet or submit "self" posts that contain original, user-submitted text. Other users may then vote the posted links "up" or "down" with the most successful links gaining prominence by reaching the front page. In addition, users can comment on the posted links and reply to other commentators consequently forming an online community.

The site has discussion areas in which users may discuss the posted links and vote for or against others' comments. When there are enough votes about a given comment, it will display on main listings, although a reader can choose to display an item before hand through a link or preference. Users who submit articles, which other users like and subsequently "vote up," are then more likely to be displayed on the main listing.
