What’s Reddit Gold?

Reddit’s paid membership is called Reddit Gold.

This paid subscription gives you an ad-free experience on the platform.

Other Reddit Gold exclusive features include a personalized Snoovatar and comment highlighting. 

What’s a Reddit mod?

In short, a Reddit mod is a moderator.

Reddit moderators are volunteers that assist various subreddit communities.

Their role is to remove members or posts that go against the community rules and guidelines. 

When you create your own subreddit you will find that you can create your own rules and guidelines for members and either have a mod, moderate it yourself, or leave it unmoderated.

Who can post on Reddit?

Anyone who creates an account on Reddit can engage.

This is an open platform that allows the exchange of conversation within its guidelines and the guidelines set by each subreddit community.

Creating an account is free unless you decide to go gold. 

Who is Reddit’s real target audience?

As we saw in the statistics, Reddit users are mostly made up of Millennials and some Gen Z users.

That means that most of its audience is between 20 something and 30 something years old.

That percentage is over 60%. Only 25% of Reddit’s users are over 40 and 21% are under 20.

Is Reddit a good platform for marketing?

The answer to this question is mostly yes.

Reddit can certainly be an effective place to advertise your business through their advertising space when you are diligent about what you market and to whom. 

Remember, you are mostly among Millennials, so they are your target demographic along with a few Gen Z users.

However, you may also find people over 35, 40, and 50 in various subreddits to target your marketing efforts.


Reddit allows advertisers to target their ads according to specific subreddit communities. 


So, now we can see how Reddit is different from other social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

We also see how many people use it, what country uses the most (the United States), and other demographics marketers, brands, and businesses can use to create or update their marketing strategies.

Reddit is a large platform of a wide range of communities that engage and connect in their own special way.

It was never intended to operate like other social media platforms.

It’s more of a forum-style news aggregate site where users come together to converse about things that interest them.

Every year, Reddit continues to grow with new unique users from all over the world.

While its user database and statistics may fluctuate, most social media sites experience the same. 

We hope you have gotten value from this article about Reddit users by country and more today.
