  1. Teddit: browse Reddit in a privacy preserving way Reddit has become a central discussion hub in the past couple of years. The site has received a number of financing rounds in the past decade, the last in February 2019 when it received $300 million based on a €3 billion valuation.

While it is possible to use content blockers to prevent many of these from being effective or loaded at all, some have
  2.

The team analyzed conversations on 15 subreddits focused on mental health issues, along with 11-non-mental health forums, such as r/PersonalFinance.

  5. Reddit's massively popular /r/teenagers sub went bootleg crazy this week when thousands of subscribers used the platform to watch pirated movies. For reasons that aren't exactly clear, young adults suddenly began uploading titles including Sonic the Hedgehog, Cars, Shrek, Toy Story and...erm...Silence of the Lambs. With close to two million subscribers, Reddit’s /r/teenagers sub-Reddit is a massive community by any standards. “Run by teenagers for teenagers”, this section of Reddit is “primarily for discussions and memes that an average

  7. Seibel is well-known in the tech world for promoting diversity and inclusion. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian stepped down from his position on the board last week, urging the company to fill his seat with a black candidate. Now, the company has appointed Michael Seibel, a venture capital investor, advisor and entrepreneur, in his place. Seibel is well known for promoting diversity and inclusion. “I want to thank Steve [Huffman, CEO], Alexis, and the entire Reddit board for this opportunity,” Seibel said in a state
  8. Reddit is launching built-in subreddit chat rooms It’s a new way for users to bond over shared interests Reddit is introducing a new chat room tool, in a throwback to the old days of the internet when those were a thing. The feature, called “Start Chatting,” will randomly sort users of popular subreddits into small, private group chats. Reddit says the feature is rolling out to around 16,000 SFW subreddits this week. To use the feature, you’ll want to visit a popular subreddit that has the feature enabled. You’ll see a button labeled “Start Chatting” beneath
  9. Reddit has published new data which shows that 124,247 pieces of content were removed following copyright takedown notices last year. This is a fivefold increase compared to the year before. For the first time, the site also reported details on its repeat infringer policy which resulted in 283 users and 137 subreddits being banned. Reddit is without doubt one of the most visited sites on the Internet. The community-oriented platform has “subreddits” dedicated to pretty much every topic you can think of. These result in a constant stream of discussions and
  10. Like many online platforms of late, Reddit has been updating some elements of its policies for the new decade. The latest change sees the site address impersonation on its platform, moving to ban it with a handful of exceptions. The move falls in line with the desire to limit the spread of misinformation, therefore the new policy update could affect things like deepfake videos that are not made for comedy, but rather to share false information. As such the one significant exception to this policy update from Reddit is that it will still allow impersonation
  11. r/The_Donald still exists at Reddit, but it's been pushed into the site's "quarantined" basement after a series of threats against police were posted there. “Recent behaviors including threats against the police and public figures is content that is prohibited by our violence policy,” a Reddit spokesperson said in a statement. “As a result, we have actioned individual users and quarantined the subreddit." The new quarantine was brought on by anti-police threats posted on The_Donald. Some users had apparently encouraged violence against law
  12. All good things must come to an end, and this happened to be the case today for the popular Reddit page, “r/nbastreams.” The page was a go-to option for many Reddit users, who would access links leading to live streams of NBA games completely for free. Although completely illegal, the streaming of copyrighted content, as opposed to downloaded content, makes it more difficult to track down the individuals responsible for producing the stream. Even though these links are posted on Reddit, the links are not directly associated with Reddit, making their direct
  13. Change My View (previously) is a wonderful subreddit founded by a Scottish highschooler named Kal Turnbull as a forum where people can conduct honest inquiry and debate, where the house-rules ensure that there is an open-minded willingness to have your views changed, and where those changes are marked with a Δ (delta) symbol. Turnbull is now 23 with a degree in civil engineering, and he and his community members have built a standalone Change My View site with help from Google/Alphabet's Jigsaw, which has trained some comment-ranking tools on Change My View's data-set
  14. Reddit Admins Issue Formal Warning to /r/piracy, Totally Out of the Blue After never directing a single complaint to the popular /r/piracy discussion forum, Reddit Legal has now issued its moderators with an official warning concerning its future. Almost no evidence has been provided but apparently 74 complaints in recent months triggered the warning. Reddit has a quarter of a billion monthly users. On March 17, 2019, TorrentFreak published an article about Reddit’s /r/piracy discussion forum. It was actually prepared six days earlier
  15. Reddit’s /r/Piracy Mods Get Tough on Reckless Pirates Reddit's /r/piracy sub is a thriving community of almost 350,000 subscribers, some of whom are terrified it's going to be shut down. However, a key moderator there has recently revealed a zero tolerance approach for copyright infringement, with a one-strike suspension policy for offenders. As one of the most-visited sites on the entire Internet, Reddit needs little introduction. The site has millions of daily visitors who read and contribute to countless discussions on

  17. Accounts of some Reddit users have been locked out or suspended due to irregular behavior that could suggest unauthorized access. The Reddit security team has stated that they plan on allowing affected users to perform a password reset in a few hours time. The suspected cause for the unusual activity seen from the locked accounts is a credential stuffing attack, which takes advantage of users’ practice of reusing the same login password for multiple websites and online services. Recycling credentials is a dangerous habit because it presents a hacker with the
  18. The site’s head claims that the policy of not collecting personal information allows people to be “more true to themselves. Steven Huffman, the co-founder and CEO of Reddit Reddit, the self-described “front page of the internet,” may have a key tool in its arsenal as Americans begin to question their relationship with social media: anonymity. According to Steve Huffman, the site’s co-founder and CEO, “privacy is built into Reddit.” All that’s required to create an account and post on any of Reddit’s 1.2 million forums is an email address, a user
  19. According to Alexa – the Amazon-owned web traffic analyzing platform – more people now visit Reddit than Facebook in the US Spotted, of course, on Reddit by user IamATechieNerd, the stats will be a big boost for the social sharing platform, especially with many users still irked about the recent re-design. It’s important to note that analyzing web traffic using a tool like Alexa is not an exact science, but it’s interesting that it has now put Reddit ahead of Facebook. If the stats are to be believed, Google is still the most visited site, foll
  20. A popular sub-Reddit specializing in links to infringing content will effectively shut itself down after an official warning from Reddit's administrators. Megalinks has more than 108,000 subscribers but has now found a new home after Reddit threatened to implement its repeat infringer policy if the sub didn't clean up its act. Without doubt, Reddit is one of the most popular sites on the entire Internet. At the time of writing it’s the fourth most visited site in the US with 330 million users per month generating 14 billion screenviews. The core of the site’s succ
  21. As part of its now annual Transparency Report, Reddit has revealed that copyright complaints sent to the platform under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act jumped 138% in 2017. While the leap is significant, the numbers involved a still surprisingly low for a platform of its size. Nevertheless, the company still rejected more than 44% of all notices for not being valid. So-called ‘transparency reports’ are becoming increasingly popular with Internet-based platforms and their users. Among other things, they provide much-needed insight into how outsiders attempt to censor content pu
  22. Reddit, one of the most active hubs of Bitcoin enthusiasts, has dropped its support for the cryptocurrency. The widely read social media site will no longer accept Bitcoin as payment for its Reddit Gold program. A person claiming to be an administrator on the site told users who were grumbling about the shift that the decision was made, in part, due to Coinbase discontinuing its Merchant Tool product. “The upcoming Coinbase change, combined with some bugs around the Bitcoin payment option that were affecting purchases for certain users, led us to
  23. For years, r/DarkNetMarkets was the place where drug dealers, hackers, and cyber criminals, would hang out and talk about what happened on illicit marketplaces hosted on the dark web such as Silk Road and Alphabay—and a place for feds to lurk in the hopes of catching some criminals. On Wednesday, Reddit banned the popular community “due to a violation of Reddit’s policy against transactions involving prohibited goods or services.” Before its shutdown, r/DarkNetMarkets had almost 160,000 readers. The subreddit has always been controver
  24. Reddit has introduced 2FA security to help its users protect their online accounts. On Wednesday, the web content aggregation platform acknowledged that two-factor authentication (2FA) is a feature that users have requested for a long time. Reddit is now able to deliver. 2FA facilitates additional layers of security for online accounts, usually by connecting accounts to a mobile device and delivering one-time codes for additional authentication.
