Reddit updates default Subreddits

This has not happened since October, 2011. Reddit updates its default Subreddits - gone are /r/politics and /r/atheism, two of the most troublesome Subreddits. In its places are Subreddits like /r/EartPorn, /r/ExplianLikeImfive and /r/books. Reddit seems to be looking to go a bit more mainstream with this change. Reddit however denies that and simply says that the older Subreddits were not really growing as expected. And the new default Subreddits seems to be gaining in traction, and also in the number of new users subscribing to them. Whatever might be the reason for this new change on Reddit. Users who are used to seeing things the same might miss the old defaults.

Reddit front page default SubredditsThis however does not mean you can't have the old Subreddits back to your front page. You can always unsubscribe from the new ones and subscribe to the old Subreddits to have them back. Some of the more popular Subreddits that have really been growing have been /r/IAMA and /r/TodayILearned. IAMA has been used by just about everyone to tell the world who they are and what they do. From Barack Obama to Steven Spielberg. Anyone can use this Subreddit if they have something to share with the rest of the world. TodayILeanred is for people to share links with things they might have learned fro the first time today on the internet. it is a very interesting Subreddit for those who like to increase their knowledge of the not-so-common, or just have a good read.
