The @UofGlasgow Social Media Team is looking forward to adding a new platform to its arsenal this week - Reddit, writes Emma Gilmartin, Social Media Manager. 

About Reddit

Reddit is a social news website where users can post links to content on the web. Other users may then vote the posted links up or down, causing them to appear more or less prominently on the Reddit home page. 

Ask me Anything

Reddit has an ‘Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) forum which is what we’ll be launching on Thursday whereby users can ask us anything about a chosen subject.

We plan to use Reddit to showcase interesting research subjects and topical news stories from the University so please feel free to get in touch if you’d like to find out more.

It’s a great channel to build engagement and interaction with a broad audience base, whether that be for recruitment or potential partners.
