Unlike Digg, Reddit has survived. Both are social networking website where users vote up or vote down the content submitted by other users. Reddit has grown from a network of niche communities to the front page of the Internet. The social news site, which received 47 million visitors lately, has become a voice to be reckoned with on the web.

I was personally very moved by emotional element in Alexis Ohanian’s voice where he looks back on how Reddit was created, what is essence of Reddit and how its unique. Watch on YouTube:
