Reddit’s new location tagging feature continues its push to become a social network

Reddit is continuing its march towards becoming a social network by adding location tagging to its mobile app.

The service is famously known as ‘the front page of the Internet,’ but this year has rolled out features that align it to Twitter or Facebook. Back in March, Reddit introduced user profile pages and the option to follow others, so location tagging – powered by Foursquare – is very much a continuation of that strategy.

One of the Internet’s most active sites in terms of a tirelessly engaged user base, using the platform to engage in conversation from the 2017 Election to the best art house films of the past twenty years, Reddit’s move to dial up personalisation and networking through location based geo-tagging demonstrates how the network is looking to leverage its audience to spend more time and share more of themselves.
