Reddit: How To Use It And Why You Should

Reddit is an explosion of information. It’s a hub for everything cool going on in the entire world. It has the exact article you feel like reading or picture you feel like looking at. All you need to do is program in your own information so its brilliant Internet brain figures out how you roll, and it’ll start delivering your hopes, needs, wants and desires right to your screen within minutes. Unfortunately, not everyone has gotten on board yet. Why? Probably because the site is overwhelming and visually hideous. It’s like genie vomit.

It’s okay, though. If you’re one of the confused and bewildered many who haven’t yet given Reddit a try or have given up after just a few usages, it’s not too late to get on board and the above video will help. It was put together by CGPGrey, and it explains every surface level thing you might want to know about the Internet’s front page, all while presenting a compelling case as to why it should be used.

Ordinarily, the goal of CGPGrey is to take very complicated historical or world news issues and explain it in an efficient and informative way. The popular YouTube channel has devoted episodes to the difference between Holland and the Netherlands, the specifics it takes to become Pope and why we have a debt limit. Upon first glance, this topic might seem very out of place, but it’s actually perfect for the CGPGrey treatment. Whether the creators would like to admit it or not, Reddit appears insanely complicated to the average person, but really, the potential users just need a five minute explanation for what the hell is going on. It’s like a sophisticated, well made driver’s ed video for the Internet.
