The Internet has brought about all kinds of new opportunities and advancements for billions of people. With the advent of smartphones and portable computers, more people than ever before are now online, learning and sharing with each other. This gives them the chance to participate in all of the benefits that come with internet access.
Chief amongst these is the ability for groups of like-minded people to come together and form their own communities. In the past, it might have been difficult for a selection of people interested in a niche topic to communicate with each other regularly or start up a group, but the Internet gives them the chance to do exactly that. This means that communities that might never have been possible to establish just a few decades ago can now flourish online.
One of the premier websites for these types of communities is Reddit. This discussion site and forum effectively gives anyone the chance to set up their own group, or subreddit, so that they can converse with other people with similar interests. Whilst most of these subreddits are the type of ordinary thing you would expect people to want to talk about, some involve the weirdest and strangest cultures and communities that you could ever imagine. Some, honestly, defy imagination.
