The annual Reddit Recap dropped Thursday morning and the year went...well...kind of how you'd expect.
For instance, the subreddit r/ukraine exploded in popularity, up 76,000 percent according to Reddit, sparked by Russia's invasion of the country and the ensuing war. It racked up 1.8 billion views. But the most viewed subreddit was an old stalwart: r/AmITheAsshole, colloquially know as AITA. It's the place Redditors go to share stories and ask who the asshole is in that situation.
The subreddit r/place was a rising star this year. If you're not familiar, r/place is a project from Josh Wardle (yes, the creator of Wordle) where users are able to place a single pixel on a blank, digital canvas. Each pixel is on a timer, so it cannot be spammed endlessly, meaning groups of people work together to create art on that canvas by claiming space. The final result is typically a beautiful, strange mashup. Despite being a four-day event, r/place was the 16th most viewed subreddit this year.
This year, Reddit Recap comes with a personalized experience. Kind of like Spotify Wrapped but, you know, Reddit. Users will be shown stats on how long they spent on Reddit, content they engaged with, and communities they spent time in. Users will also be given what Reddit calls a recap "experience" which shows them if they are Team Cat or Dog, their most upvoted comment, avatar outfit changes, r/places tiles placed, and communities the user might want to join. They'll also be ranked as either Rare, Epic, or Legendary based on their Karma points.
So if you've ever wondered how much time do I really spend on Reddit, well, this year's recap is perfect for you. Log in and check out exactly how you spent the year on Reddit.
