Journal

I could not find any reilable journal based information on my topic which Reddit and memes in popular culture. So Johnathan told me to write about why I could not find any information.

I think the reason why I could not find any information on Reddit is becuase Reddit was founded in 2005 and no serious media annalists have looked at the site in a educated way. The site was unknown to me till this summer. From what I know of the site, it attracts a special niche crowd on the internet. These people are usually the first to put new viral memes and videos, from there content get cycled around to tumbler and 4chan and so on. As I looked more into Reddit I found that they are not as radical as 4chan. So becuase they are not that crazy as 4chan they have not gathered media attention and have stayed under the radar for sometime.
