Some people assume that Subreddit and Reddit are the same, especially when they hear about it for the first time. Reddit is known to be an online website wherein people can post the different topics that they want. Subreddit, on the other hand, is known to be a forum that will be dedicated to a certain topic that can be found in Reddit. For example, the forum will be about childbirth. Those who are interested in topics that are related to childbirth will probably upvote or downvote the forums based on the things that they will learn about it. All of the details that will be placed in a certain subreddit will be the same. Another subreddit may be dedicated to an entirely different topic, such as automobiles. All of these subreddits will be under Reddit.

To create a subreddit, you must be a member of Reddit for at least 30 days, and other stuff might be required, such as a total number of karma you have. Reddit consists of over a thousand of Subreddits. Reddit is a very popular website for asking, discussion, and rating web content. It was built in June 2005 by 2 University students Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian, who were students of the University of Virginia at the time. A subreddit is mainly a specific group that focuses on specific topics. You can identify one by name. Subreddits have “r/” in front of them. Only users of Reddit can create a subreddit. Members of a subreddit post content that gets voted up or down by relevance and by user preference. In summary, Reddit is the entire website, while a subreddit is a group with a specific focus on Reddit.
