Every day, the Post Dispatch's Twitter feed will put up a question a reader asked on Reddit. I've ignored this most days, other days I'll click the link to see what the deal is. I'm always sorry I wasted my time because there is really nothing there. No there there.
So what is Reddit and what is its purpose? It bills itself as the front page of the internet which is a rather bold statement when you consider it has a long way to go to be the first place anyone heads when they turn on their phones or computers. Reddit is a social news and entertainment website where registered users submit content in the form of either a link or a text ("self") post. Other users then vote the submission "up" or "down", which is used to rank the post and determine its position on the site's pages and front page. Content entries are organized by areas of interest called "subreddits".
Here's the link I looked at this morning, put up by the P-D on Twitter. As you can see, the question is, "Where can I get a couple thousand baseball cards assessed around the STL area?" Then you find only one comment and then basically a blank page.
I just don't get it and don't actually know anyone who ever uses it or mentions it.
