Reddit is just cats now

Posted on September 13, 2013


So i used to be a reddit fan. Great way to find new stuff. Except these last months it seems to front page has turned into a pet show-and-tell. Cut animals are all very well, bit hardly newsworthy.
Conversely major events take place in the world. Huge surveillance revelations from the Snowden leaks, which you’d think would be relevant to the internet community. But on reddit, just cars.
Now i would suggest a conspiracy to keep those stories off the front pages (a task easier than you might think given how much impact early votes have on final popularity). Except that i have no problem believing the internet would rather look at cats than read about the worst affront to civil liberty in recent history.
