Top subreddits by subscribers
The website known as Reddit actually holds quite a lot of sway when it comes to what is popular and what is being discussed on the Internet. It is a website that is all about discussions on pretty much anything you can think of and in order to keep things better organized, the website allows people to set up their own discussions in areas that are known as subreddits.
Now, some of these subreddits have quite a lot of members and the discussions are lengthy to say the least. What you will also tend to find is that they are not even using long tags to describe them either making it extremely easy to find what you are looking for and just jump head first into the discussions.
So, what are the current subreddits by subscribers? Well, just before we go into them do remember that this is something that can easily change so just because we say a particular subreddit is in a certain position right now does not mean that they are going to stay there for an eternity.
That being said, the subreddit that is the most popular by the way of the number of subscribers is AskReddit and it has a pretty impressive 12.7 million subscribers. As the name suggests, it is quite a general discussion and you are going to find all kinds of things in here including people giving their opinions on things happening in the world as well as quite a lot of comedy that is certainly worth exploring.
However, not too far behind it in the list of the top subreddits by subscribers is ‘Funny’ and this is also pretty self-explanatory with what it is going to be about. The only thing that we would say is that not everything that appears in there is going to be to the taste of everybody but hey that is part of the fun of it all as you just never know what you are going to find on Reddit.
Moving further down the list, you have the subreddit called ‘todayIlearned’ with 12.5 million subscribers and that is certainly the place you want to be if you are serious about picking up some new knowledge as you while away some spare time. Warning, you will probably end up with so much useless knowledge that you will just have no idea what to then do with it.
Other subreddits that you might want to know are popular include those linked to world news, pics, videos, science, and even gaming has 11.7 million subscribers for you to get your teeth into. Indeed, as you move even further down the list of the most popular subreddits by subscribers you find that topics such as earthporn, explainitlikeimfive, mildlyinteresting, showerthoughts and so many others still have millions and millions of subscribers.
What this does is it really shows the popularity of the website because we are only talking about a handful of the subreddits that are on there because even the one that is in 100th place according to the number of subscribers is facepalm with getting close to 500,000 subscribers. That is pretty impressive considering you will find the same things in that subreddit as you will elsewhere.
However, the other thing that the list of the most popular subreddits shows is that the site is actually very well organized and that is one thing that is going to make life so much easier as a result. As you browse through the list you get a real sense of what the site is about and the freedom that people have to do whatever they want. Also, by checking out the number of subscribers you get a real sense of just how popular some of the topics are going to be and you could spend an eternity trying to get to grips with the various discussions that are taking place.
As we said earlier, even though a number of the top subreddits have well over a million subscribers, their actual popularity is going to ebb and flow as they are going to be affected by world events and whatever is going viral at the time. However, when you consider that Reddit itself can be behind what is going viral then perhaps we should pay more attention to these subreddits after all.
