Reddit is one of the older social networks and it is a constant source of new information, headlining Ask Me Anything sessions and generally epic conversations. However, it has always lagged behind other newer social networks in offering services that have become a standard like a mobile app, which they fixed that fortunately. It is good they are rectifying such oddities for a network of this size and the latest update involves embedding.
Embedding posts have become standard feature by social networks which allow people to embed posts they see on a network to a website. According to TechCrunch, Reddit’s head of journalism and media, Mark Luckie gave out information about the new update.
The great thing about Reddit content is that it’s usually longer, it’s more insightful, more in-depth than you’ll see on other social platforms. You’re going to get a more robust conversation.
A lot of news originates from Reddit and now it will be possible for publishers (just like us) to embed content from the site instead of relying on links or screenshots. Just like any other embedded posts, you can just tap on them and go straight to the conversation on Reddit.
Reddit has been making incremental changes in a bid to drive more engagement and to attract new users. They recently rolled out the official Reddit app for iOS and Android which looks good to be honest and made us retire the third party ones we were accustomed to. They also introduced a block button in a bid to equip users weed out harassment on the site.
