Over the last five years, social news site, Reddit has gone from a “What site?” kind of place to a “Didn’t you read it on Reddit yesterday?” kind of place. This infographic timeline charts the rise of Reddit.

Editor’s Note: Somehow the political bashing in the lower part of the infographic got overlooked; in jest or not, that’s not our style. We’ve pulled the image– but the curious among you can check it out at the source link below.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    This was terrible. Not only were there numerous spelling mistakes, redundant information, and subjective musings, but the insults against liberals was unnecessary. How stupid.

    @datdamonfoo haha, looks like some fracking douchebag liberal is mad.
    reddit is awesome. I used to be on digg, but digg has become a weed smoking liberal atheists’ place. Wanna be on the front page of digg? Submit something about legalizing weed or bashing christians and voila, you’re on the front page.

    @dima You obviously haven’t been on reddit too long. Everything you just mentioned describes reddit exactly. It’s easily one of the most liberal, pro-atheism, pro-marijuana legalization sites on the internet. The entire front page is plastered with stuff like this every single day. How could you possibly visit the site and miss it?

    Regardless of Reddit’s liberal leanings or lack there of, it’s not our style to post political material. I missed the portion of the infographic doing the political bashing when I read over it this morning. Image pulled.

    It’s okay, datdamonfoo is a jerk on every website he visits. He’s notorious for being a colossal jerk, take everything he says with a freaking salt mine.
