  An online community where users vote on content. One of the most frequented websites on the Internet.

Redditors vote on which stories and discussions are important. the hottest stories rise to the top, while cooler stories sink.

Anyone can create a community (called "subreddits"). each subreddit is independent and moderated by a team of volunteers.

Comments can be posted on every story on reddit, they add information, context, and humor.

Users can select the type of content that will display when they visit the page. For example - if you are into cooking, food and health but do not want to see gaming, politics and fashion, then that's what it is.

To get started, once you set up and account, you can visit redditlist.com, click on the topic(s) you like, then click on "SUBSCRIBE"...
