    Do we have a voice on Reddit ?

    Just curious. There are a bunch of cycling groups and weight loss groups but I have not found 1 single subreddit there for just us.

    Not sure how the rest of you feel about Reddit but I figured I would ask.

    We need a "What is Reddit" choice or a "do we really need another social networking site" choice.

    Facebook is ok but I am sure there are many who don't really want to give out as much info as Facebook attempts to make us. As for Reddit, it can be as open or as anonymous as a person wants it to be and, IMO, posting and commenting is much easier (well, defined and whatnot anyways).

    I have no problem coming here, so many VERY nice people I look forward to getting to know better.. but I spend a ton of time on Reddit so I was hoping there was a way to merge the 2 somehow. Not really a big deal or anything

    I kind of know what Reddit is. I do not use it, and have a twitter account that I have not used since the day I opened it. Almost all of my social networking is user forums like this, Strava, and occasional brief forays into Facebook, until I can't stand the rantings (Some from the left, but most from the right) of some of the social network, that is mostly my wife's. She's in FB daily.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Yeah, I have a Facebook page but rarely use it other than to send messages to my son across state or my Uncle up north. Reddit, it has a bit of everything.. all characterized by "subreddit" (section)

    I try and avoid all the political nonsense and people who rant about it on my Facebook wall get put on ignore so I no longer see their stuff. The way I see it, we all have our views.. and nobody cares what yours is lol.

    I voted "yes" but now having gone to the Reddit site for the first time, I have a question....just what exactly is the purpose of Reddit? To me, there was no rhyme or reason to it. Maybe I'm too old to "get it." LOL

    Took me a bit to get it when I first heard about Reddit. When you first go there, what you see is a bunch of nonsense and mostly from sections none of us would care about. Once you sign up (or create a random name), you can edit it to just show you the sections that interest you. For me, I only see the section where I do logos and designs for people, a "funny" section where they post some of the most stupid things I have ever seen, and the section for my city (most decent size cities have their own section).
