Reddit adds new social features and user profiles

Reddit has introduced profile pages and the ability for users to make posts on their own profile.

This marks a big change for making posts on Reddit, with users previously only able to post to communities or subreddits.

Reddit users will also be able to create their own avatar, which will be displayed on their profile page, along with a short description or user bio.

The new features are currently only available to a handful of redditors, but will roll out to more users in the future.

Redditors will be able to follow the chosen testers, which will result in their posts appearing on the follower’s front page – based on the same popularity algorithms as existing posts.
