This is one of my favorite social bookmarking site.


Where can I find alternatives platforms for community managers and developers?

You can make a subreddit easily enough and become a mod there, or you can take the source and use it on your own website, since the code is free. I'd like to have a way to show Reddit alternatives specific to this usage? For instance one might list vBulletin as an alternative.

I like Reddit better than Digg because I can filter what things I see on there. My Reddit homepage consists entirely of pictures of cats, PC building tips, and rage comics. More or less.

What I DON'T like about Reddit is that their website is super-slow. Reloading the homepage takes a million years, and every once in a while, loading the comments section just causes my old Windows computer to freeze for 10 seconds. :(
