Hi folks, y'all. I have heard of Reddit. How good of a site is it to talk about geography and different places to live because I think each city and state has its own sub where you can get information about places to live? Is Reddit a good site better than city data? Many Thanks in advance.

Try it out, rather than asking in one forum whether some other forum might be able to help you.

I have the reddit app, so I scroll down and it shows random stuff like the UK subreddit.

I don't like it because Someone will start a thread and then 3000 people will comment on it with derailing, or inane comments. I don't like reading inane stuff. So the signal to noise ratio is well off.

I've noticed that youtube comments actually are amusing or thoughtful in many instances but reddit comments? eurgh! like tow-tier dad jokes.

I had a reddit account years ago, but quit due to all the crap in the feed. Facebook is getting very much like that now, I typically spend around 5 seconds on there after logging on due to the endless trash in my feed. The noise to content ratio is way off.

I find Reddit to be pretty useful, you just have to use the search function if you're looking for a specific answer to a question, and set your feed to sort by new rather than sort by hot if you actually want to join discussions, as otherwise you'll only see high volume posts were you'll likely get drowned out by the previous threads.
