Reddit is where individuals meet up to have the most true and intriguing discussions on the web—Where gaming networks, nostalgic web gatherings, bloggers, image producers, and fandoms blend close by video decorations, support gatherings, news addicts, easy chair specialists, prepared experts, and craftsmen and makers, everything being equal.
On average 30% of these submissions are voted down by the users and so are deprived of being seen by other subscribers. A low participation base was one of the reasons why reddit has always struggled to gain popularity.
Recently, however, reddit got its long-awaited native app for android & iOS users which allows them to share images or links right from their smartphones. The app is available free of cost for android devices but costs $1.99 on iTunes store.
Two possible reasons for you to delete your account
