In Stunning Interactive, Reddit's Communities Get Mapped

A Reddit admin wanted to visualize the connections between the site's many sub-communities, so he built an impressive interactive map to do just that.

One Reddit user has created an amazing data visualization of relationships between various Reddit discussion boards. Using every Reddit post since 2008, user sharkbait784 created an interactive graph showing how various discussion boards (or "Subreddits") are tied together. Only Subreddits that regularly link to others were included in the project.

Fast Company has previously written about Reddit's growth and the link-swapping site's increasingly prominent cultural role.
