Review #1: Reddit

This is seriously my favorite site on the world wide web, which is why I made it my first review.

Reddit does a great job of keeping their site very simple. This allows for everyone who has been on Reddit to be able to navigate it and enjoy it easily. The best websites do this to make sure they don’t scare potential visitors away. Sites that are very complex and hard to navigate get very few visitors.

Also, the front page immediately draws you in. There is no questioning what post you want to go into, because the content is laid out in headers and images to draw your interest to whatever you want to look at.

Its biggest strength is also its biggest weakness. Reddit kind of adopts the “if its not broken don’t fix it” mentality. In all the years that I have been on the site I have not seen one update to the interface. I think the old style may eventually have to be updated slightly, but don’t get me wrong they still need to keep it simple.

Overall I would give Reddit 4.5 stars out of 5!
