I have asked myself the same question. It was founded in 2005 by a couple students and became an internet success very quickly. Maybe it was because there was a niche for this type of site at the time but it now has millions of visitors each month.

It is loaded with information and I have found some of my favourite sites through it. If I'm looking for something new or if I have a problem that I can't solve Reddit is the answer. It attracts people from all over the world and even site owners will answer questions that members ask to try and help them out. I find some of the information is a little out of date but it still makes an interesting read.

I wonder if those students realised when they began just how popular the site would become. They should be proud.

It isn't that difficult to see why Reddit has become so popular and successful over the years. Reddit was founded in 2005, it might sound like a short time, but it's actually a long time in relationships to the internet and social media. Although Google was officially launched in 1998, it's other major services like Gmail got launched in 2004, a year before Reddit. Facebook too was launched in 2004. Judging from this, you'd agree that Reddit has come along way and is also a media giant like the instances mentioned earlier.
Reddit is a forum where you can find almost every information you seek. This is because of user activities which has been going on since 2005. This was a period where sites like Reddit were rarely available as we see today. I guess we can refer to Reddit as a pioneer in it's line of operations. And unlike other early forums, Reddit stood it's ground and continue to strive regardless of any issues they might have faced at the start.
