Reddit Is Launching Upvote, A News Website Featuring Best Of RedditBy cheatmaster 02:08 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments
Reddit is launching a recent website that will feature fascinating stuff from its own community, according to a report from Wired. Dubbed Upvote, the website will be accessible to the general public today.
As per the report, the concept behind Upvote is to regain the traffic Reddit loses when stories shared on it are picked up by other media outlets.
“The stuff our community creates on a daily basis blows our mind,” assumed the team behind the recent website. “Unfortunately, rather than telling that story, some news outlets hold our users’ content and repackage it as their own. They don’t disclose the backtale of our communities. We think our users’ stories need to be told, but with them at the center of it.”
Additionally, the site would also attract advertisers given the fact that a dedicated team - led by former Myspace editorial director Vickie Chang - will curate and write stories for it.
Interestingly, unlike Reddit, the recent website will neither let you comment on stories, nor will it have any sort of upvoting system, the report notes. However, each tale will link back to the original poster as well as its original Reddit thread.
“Everything will have a direct tie back to Reddit,” Chang said. “I want to find the tiny thread that connects it back to Reddit.”
