On July 3, the Pew Internet and American Life Project, which tracks social trends about the internet and technology, released a study focused purely on the social news and viral website Reddit. The study found, among other things, that a significantly higher proportion of Hispanics use Reddit, compared with White and Black Non-Hispanics.
Overall, Pew's study on Reddit found that six percent of all adults who use the internet use Reddit. Reddit is a social news and entertainment website where users post stories, images, videos, and news articles. Other Reddit users can comment on posts and vote submissions up or down for more or less visibility. The site is known for finding or creating viral content, and popular viral news sites often write about things that are rising in popularity on Reddit. The site is also known for carrying out question and answer sessions with celebrities or newsmakers, which are called "Ask Me Anything," or AMA.
