It has gained popularity as a result of the controversies that other social media applications like Facebook, Twitter are involved in.

What are the Features of Reddit?
Reddit is not a new application that has emerged with the digital boom. It was one of the applications that pioneered the digital revolution in the 21st century. It is a different application from that of Facebook on many levels.
Both the applications glorify communication with the social media tag, but the reality is different as there is an online application that truly serves the purpose of social media, and that is Reddit. It does so with the services and the overall functions of its application.
So, which specific features does Reddit possesses that make it so unique and special that it is steadily becoming an alternative for many users of Facebook and Twitter?
Well, we will lay down the steps for the readers to understand the features of Reddit if they are into it. But before that, let us first throw light on why other applications like Facebook are losing their number of users and are switching to Reddit.
It is simple, advertisements and bad policies on Facebook are responsible for such a condition. It endorses any kind of information that gives them revenue. The fact-checking process of Facebook has a vacuum, and it has not been regulated properly.
The application is used to score political associations and upload content based on a false premise and can be highly misleading. These circumstances have made rational users think about the objective of Facebook and opt for a better alternative.
Facebook has been taking these allegations seriously and has now started regulating the content uploaded on their servers, and some improvements have been observed by the techies.
