 Reddit is much in the news these days due to the controversy of its AMA staff Victoria Taylor who is said to have been unceremoniously removed. However the way reddit has been able to grow its traffic should be a lesson to social sites ( mainly Digg) which showed  a lot of promise earlier but they became a victim to their ” own rigidity” . Reddit  page views in 2012 was  37billion, which reached  71billion in 2014

Reddit was acquired  by Condé Nast Publications in October 2006, however Reddit became a direct subsidiary of Condé Nast’s parent company, Advance Publications, in September 2011.

Reddit has recently seen a $50 million  funding round led by Sam Altman and including investors Marc Andreessen, Peter Thiel, Ron Conway, Snoop Dogg and Jared Leto in 2014Their investment saw the company valued at $500 million.

iOS Driving 59% Non PC, US Traffic, with Tablets forming 28%

Android OS ranked second delivering 31.9% of overall non-computer traffic in August. RIM followed with a 5.0% market share. Other platforms, including Windows Mobile, combined to account for the remaining 4.6% of digital traffic.

In August 2011, the iOS platform accounted for more than half (58.5%) of the share of total non-computer Internet traffic measured through browser-based page views in the U.S, with the iPad’s dominance in the tablet market  being clearly established as  the iPad delivered 97.2% of all tablet traffic and even edged out iPhones in delivering the highest share of traffic for the iOS platform (46.8% vs. 42.6% of iOS traffic).


The percentage of that traffic driven by tablets has risen from little more than 20 percent to nearly 30 percent. In May 2011, 22.5 percent of non-computer traffic came from tablets. By August 2011 that figure had grown to 28.1 percent,eating into the share of traffic garnered by mobile devices and other web-enabled devices. 

Mobile, which continues to contribute the highest percentage of traffic among non-computer devices, showed a 3.8-percentage point decrease in its share of non-computer traffic since May 2011.
