By the Numbers: 30 Amazing Reddit Statistics

reddit statisticsTonight’s “By the Numbers” installment focuses on facts and statistics related to the social network Reddit.

Reddit is not a public company and is not as talked about in digital pubs like a Facebook, Google or Twitter, so finding interesting facts and stats was a bit tougher than usual for this one. Thankfully, the network is very up front with some of their major user stats, so that made getting the basics listed a bit easier. If you can think of a Reddit Stat that you’d like to see here, please leave a comment below and I will include it in my next update if I can find the stat somewhere.

Anyways, here are your Reddit statistics…

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from Reddit’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
