Reddit is both a social media site and an Internet forum – you can think of it as an old-fashioned online message board, with threads on every topic imaginable. You don’t need to log into a Reddit user account to browse the service, but if you want to post, comment, or vote on existing posts, you must log in. This is true for both Reddit in a browser on your computer and the Reddit mobile app.
