I admit I hadn’t heard of them until the other day when someone submitted a post I made to them. They delivered some nice traffic to the blog, so I decided to check out the site. Whoa! This is the kind of website I love. Fast loading, nothing too heavy on graphics, and sort of fun. Signup took literally seconds. Ease of use and all that.

Reddit is the type of website that epitomizes what people mean by the term Web 2.0. It’s an actual community where people submit and rate stories, because they care. That’s the whole point, and Reddit definitely gets it. Usability is what rules the day. We all know Google didn’t become ubiquitous because of their visual sense, but rather how the functioned.

This community is Digg without the pretentiousness. Digg and Netscape as Web 2.0 websites are both becoming way too commercialized and attempting be slick to appeal to a wider audience. Reddit is sticking to its’ core: people who love the news stories that they submit and vote on. I wish all the best success for this website because it just does so many things right.

Reddit has all the requisite features:

1) Easy signup
2) Easy to use and understand interface
3) Ability to rate and comment on stories

Make sure to check out when you get the chance.
