Best open-source Reddit alternatives you should know about

The website gave a number of reasons, which weren’t welcomed by the open-source and Small Reddit iconReddit community. So, here's a list of free and open-source Reddit alternatives you might find interesting.


  • Voat.co

    Free Web Website

    Voat is a news aggregator and social networking service where registered community members can submit content such as text posts and direct links.

Voting is commonly called "voating" by users. Content entries are organized by areas of interest called "subverses."
