Why Reddit’s Garbage Communities Might Be The Least Of Its Problems

buzzfeed.com — As incoming CEO Steve Hoffman begins his second tenure at the helm of Reddit, the spotlight will largely fall on the company's renewed efforts to rein in its seediest communities without destroying the unique early internet message board culture that defines the site.

buzzfeed.com — Last night's basically unprecedented Ashley Madison data dump will probably drastically alter (read: fuck up) a bunch of lives. It will not, however, change the way we secure ourselves online. Now, there are a number of ways to look at the mass exposure of the personal information of people who were allegedly signed up for an adultery site.

The Incredible Shrinking Google

buzzfeed.com — Imagine trying to explain Google to somebody who'd never heard of it before. It might sound a bit like this: OK, so Google is this company that started off helping you search for things on the internet and later turned into a really successful advertising company - but an advertising company that wanted to do email and instant messaging and photos and social networking, and to map the entire globe.

How A Simple Apple Feature Called Switch Control Is Changing Lives

buzzfeed.com — On April 3, 2012, Christopher Hills posted a clip to his YouTube account. In the three-minute video, Hills squarely addresses his webcam from what looks like his childhood bedroom. On the white walls behind him are a smattering of posters of high-end sports cars, jets, and rocket ships - it's the kind of teen bedroom that's been home to countless YouTube rants, confessions, and reviews.

Nothing Changes At Reddit

buzzfeed.com — This afternoon, some indeterminate, yet undoubtedly enormous number of real human beings gathered around their computers to watch newly minted Reddit CEO, Steve Huffman propose a new - and desperately needed - content policy for the site.

Is Reddit's New CEO Really Committed To Combatting Harassment

buzzfeed.com — Here's a subreddit that a reader tipped BuzzFeed News to this morning. It's called r/rapingwomen. It is a community dedicated to sharing rape tips and bonding over raping women. The header image is a picture of alleged serial rapist Bill Cosby with the caption "have a sleepy pill."

Inside The Wonderful World Of Flight Attendant Internet

buzzfeed.com — Any flight attendant will tell you that there's something about being stuck in an aluminum tube 35,000 feet in the air that makes ordinary human beings behave in extraordinary ways. Excited baby-boomer vacationers toss back miniature bottles of hard liquor with reckless abandon like co-eds while toddlers wail over the coos of frustrated parents.

Reddit Isn't Just Facing A Rebellion, It's Openly Losing It

buzzfeed.com — If you're looking for an example of just how grim things are over at Reddit, CEO Ellen Pao's mea culpa is a perfect place to start. This afternoon, Pao posted a 335 word apology for Reddit's "long history of mistakes" over the past few years, in the wake of a holiday weekend crisis in which prominent subreddits were closed off to the public by moderators.
