What are some alternatives to Reddit?
Slide is a sleek and elegant online community that streams new posts from subreddits to create an always up-to-date list. No matter if you prefer r/aww or want to chat about business, Slide gives you the full Reddit experience with none of the clutter usually found in other social media sites.
Digg is a popular alternative to Reddit. Another alternative is Hubski.
In both cases, you’ll need an account in order to use the services and post information. Both sites have an open registration process that’s free for all users, so there’s no requirement for email verification or phone number input.
Digg has unique features such as write articles/commentary on any topic and submit them anonymously without any blogging experience or qualifications (which may seem like it’s making it easier to add content than sites like LinkedIn), but critics say that this has led to unwanted spam content as opposed to professionally-written articles that might represent views of different demographics and err on the side of caution when dealing with sensitive subjects such as politics.
Alternatives to Reddit can range a lot depending on what you want. But the following sites are pretty popular ones which have been mentioned many times and are always worth checking out: DIGG, inkyblogs, ebaumsworld, Slashdot, or use other blogging services. In addition to these sites there is also BBC News and Yahoo! Finance for different news updates – all of which can be explored with a simple google search.
Digg, Git Hub
The word “alternatives” implies that there are other options. Well, the reality is that Reddit has a monopoly on the social news field, so it’s really a question of “what are some good alternatives”. Here are two sites often cited as being viable alternatives to Reddit:
- Digg.com – Very similar layout and user interface but doesn’t have quite as much community involvement or number of users
- GitHub – Provides code hosting and collaboration but designed for programmers. Not just a general discussion board like Reddit.
- Some would say these also count as alternatives because they’re different communities with different tastes: 4chan, Fark and Something Awful (Sthx).
