Reddit.com; News, Gossip, Made-up stories

This website is based on the belief that anybody can and will post anything they want to on the internet. It is based on the fact that if people hear a story, real or fake they can post it and let people figure it out for themselves.

The posts are separated into different headings such as, most controversial, what’s hot, and top post. And you can search different posts with a huge bar at the top that includes topics such as funny, politics, gaming, worldnews, videos, and askreddit. The askreddit are posts where anybody can post any random question that comes to their mind i.e. “What song, if you hear it while driving, will inexplicably make you want to drive a billion miles per hour?” This resulted in 1690 comments in 6 hours. For these questions they have a panel of 22 ‘moderators’ who regulate different specifications such as no poll type questions and no yes or no questions either. You can also get banned by this board of moderators if you post any personal information and you can easily contact any one of these if one of your posts disappear or  you have any problems at all.

They also have a list of guidelines and tips for making a good post and what other kind of posts are going to get banned. It seems pretty clear but leaves a lot of room to post whatever any one wants to. All you need is a username and a password, email is optional.

So sign up and start posting.

People believe though that Social Media for the NFL and all sports teams is a source of advertising and media that is very much untapped. Very few of these organizations have professionals running the social media system and they don’t know how to effectively use this tool. Doesn’t mean they are doing it wrong since they obviously keep making tons of money, but the point is still being pushed by people around the country.
