4 Reasons Why Reddit And The Cheezeburger Network Need Each Other


It’s no secret that Reddit (considered by many to be Digg’s biggest rival) has not not fared well after being acquired by Condé Nast, it’s current parent company.

Between the hack attempts and the lack of corporate support, it’s very clear to the geekverse that Reddit is the red headed step child of Condé Nast (pun not intended) and under its current leadership the site could become extinct through neglect.

However there is a glimmer of hope for the zealous community as Ben Huh of the Cheezeburger Network has offered to take Reddit under his wing (and yes he is serious about the offer).

Hi TDWers, I’m Ben Huh, and I run the Cheezburger Network (which includes The Daily What, if you were too Prop 19’d to notice). I have made this offer privately to a few people associated with Reddit, and I’ll say it publicly now:

I believe that Reddit is one of the best communities I have seen on the Internet. I also believe that Reddit would benefit from more resources and less corporate interference. We can offer all of the above. And we’d love to buy Reddit and all those pesky troublesome users that we love so much.

Condé, we’ll be waiting for a call.
