- I wanna stop and talk about something before we jump in to using Reddit. At this point, I'm sure that you're aware that contact on the Internet is represented by a wide range of quality and appropriateness. Before you proceed with this course, please recognize that Reddit is one of the truest examples of the unfiltered, uncensored, and mostly anonymous Internet. Reddit is one of my favorite website. You can find fascinating public conversations with world leaders and celebrities.
You can find helpful advice for learning new skills. You can find art, insight, and perspectives on nearly any topic you can think of, but on the other hand, you can and will encounter the opposite. The content and opinions that you find on Reddit are just as likely to be offensive, inappropriate, inconsiderate, and rude. If you're not comfortable with seeing the best and worst than an anonymous community has to offer, you may not want to use Reddit.
For parents, this is one of those websites that you may want to monitor very closely. As for what you'll see in this course, I'll be careful to only show content that is appropriate for a school, workplace, or a community environment, but I cannot control the content that's visible on Reddit. For that reason, in our video recordings, we've used some editing tricks to remove or obscure some content on the Reddit website just to be safe. I hope you enjoy this course and learn to approach Reddit from an informed perspective.
With that in mind, let's see what the Reddit community has to offer.
