80 Amazing Reddit Statistics and Facts (2019) | By the Numbers

Today’s “By the Numbers” installment focuses on Reddit statistics and fun facts. I hope you find these helpful!

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.

Please note that some of these Reddit statistics and facts 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.

    • Indeed, that's how many were logged in in the last day. That same page has this statistic:

      "last month, reddit had 168,519,576 unique visitors"

      And while not all of those are account-holders, it seems likely to me that the number who are is more than ~1.8%. Of course there's always the question of whether you're required to have an account to be considered "a redditor" but that's getting a little abstract for simple stats.
