In addition, the firm is creating a Spotify Wrapped-style summary.
Reddit is looking back at some of the site’s greatest events and trends from 2021, and maybe predictably, postings from r/wallstreetbets received the most upvotes. After GameStop’s stock price rose in January, and as fans followed updates from Keith Gill (aka DeepFuckingValue / Roaring Kitty), the trader who bought significantly in GameStop ahead of the company’s spike, r/wallstreetbets exploded in popularity.
According to Reddit, the following are the top five most upvoted posts:
- On r/wallstreetbets, a user purchased a billboard in Times Square that said “$GME GO BRRR” and received over 433K upvotes.
- A screenshotted tweet on r/wallstreetbets accusing Robinhood of concealing popular meme stocks and pushing users to “grab all the cash you can afford to lose and buy buy buy” received over 323K upvotes.
- Gill’s r/wallstreetbets post showing his GameStop shares dropping more than $14 million in one day received over 287K upvotes.
- A post on r/antiwork in which a member shared a screenshot informing their boss that they were resigning received over 273K upvotes.
- A video of a guy evading a cash-in-transit robbery on r/nextfuckinglevel received over 259K upvotes.
According to the company, total Reddit posts were up. More than 366 million posts were made (up 19% year on year), 2.3 billion comments were made (up 12% year on year), and “almost” 46 billion upvotes were cast (up 1 percent year over year).
Reddit isn’t only revealing some of its own greatest trends: the firm is now offering Spotify Wrapped-style customized summaries that include information like how much time you’ve spent on the network. These will became accessible on December 9th.
Sharing your embarrassing music habits on social media is part of the fun of Spotify Wrapped, and it seems that Reddit is looking for a similar response with customized Reddit Recaps. If you want to share your thoughts but don’t want people to know anything else about your account, Reddit will allow you to conceal your username and image in your recap.
