Introducing r/popular


Hi folks!

Back in the day, the original version of the front page looked an awful lot like r/all. In fact, it was r/all. But, when we first released the ability for users to create subreddits, those new, nascent communities had trouble competing with the larger, more established subreddits which dominated the top of the front page. To mitigate this effect, we created the notion of the defaults, in which we cherry picked a set of subreddits to appear as a default set, which had the effect of editorializing Reddit.

Over the years, Reddit has grown up, with hundreds of millions of users and tens of thousands of active communities, each with enormous reach and great content. Consequently, the “defaults” have received a disproportionate amount of traffic, and made it difficult for new users to see the rest of Reddit. We, therefore, are trying to make the Reddit experience more inclusive by launching r/popular, which, like r/all, opens the door to allowing more communities to climb to the front page.

Logged out users will land on “popular” by default and see a large source of diverse content.
Existing logged in users will still maintain their subscriptions.

How are posts eligible to show up “popular”?

First, a post must have enough votes to show up on the front page in the first place.
Post from the following types of communities will not show up on “popular”:

  • NSFW and 18+ communities
  • Communities that have opted out of r/all
  • A handful of subreddits that users consistently filter out of their r/all page

What will this change for logged in users?

Nothing! Your frontpage is still made up of your subscriptions, and you can still access r/all. If you sign up today, you will still see the 50 defaults. We are working on making that transition experience smoother. If you are interested in checking out r/popular, you can do so by clicking on the link on the gray nav bar the top of your page, right between “FRONT” and “ALL”.

TL;DR: We’ve created a new page called “popular” that will be the default experience for logged out users, to provide those users with better, more diverse content.

Thanks, we hope you enjoy this new feature!
