Reddit review

TERRIBLE! If they dont like your opinion it is removed within 60 seconds. Usually comments go way off topic, include vulgar unnecessary language and seems to always follow popular opinion not fact or open discussion.

Reddit is a useless platform

Reddit is an utterly disgusting and biased platform. They are not at all transparent people and their moderators are another useless lot. It does not want facts to reach people and good contents and comments are removed while the fake ones are allowed to continue. Overall not a good feeling to express on this platform. If there was a 0 rating, I would give the website 0.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (31 ):
Kids say (104 ):

This unique social sharing site is an excellent example of the power of people, but it's definitely not for kids. In its completely open environment groups have formed, campaigned, and raised significant amounts of money for positive change. Subreddits connect users with common interests while moderators keep things on topic and stick to clearly posted rules. The drawback on Reddit is the same as it is for the entire Internet -- there’s just no telling what people will put out there. Links, comments, and entire subreddits may expose kids to biased, offensive, or sexual content. Reddit’s best audience is a grown-up one.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
