Reddit user basics

In order for you to be able to post and access content, you need a Reddit account. Having a Reddit account ensures that you keep all your posts and discussions on your profile. You gain karma by upvoting. This karma is also visible on your profile and is helpful in assessing your credibility. 

Finding friends on Reddit

Reddit does not allow users to find friends directly. However, you can find them through the search tool available on the website. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Put the prefix “u/” with the username you are searching for and click search
  1. You will be directed to a page showing all the possible search results. Scroll through these and find who you’re looking for
