Reddit has gained widespread popularity over the last few years years, and – as covered in a recent Journalism.co.uk article – is used by many journalists as a news source or a sounding board for ideas, as well as for verification and engagement.

Reddit is a self-gatekeeping community known for the original content posted by its user-base, as well as links to other content on the web, which can be either up or down-voted by other users.

For new users, the platform – which comes with its own quirks and terminology – can initially appear daunting.

However, with a bit of practice, it becomes easy to navigate your way through the vast amount of content posted to the site each day.
