Pinterest Vs. Reddit


20131127-002121.jpg
I’ll admit it.  I’m pretty addicted to Pinterest,  There are some silly things on there, but there are some really useful “pins” as well – namely DIYs, home decorating/organization tips, and recipes galore.  If you’re on a certain diet (or shall we say, eating lifestyle) such as paleo, Pinterest is a gold mine.

My boyfriend pokes fun at my nights spent with a glass of wine and Pinterest.  And honestly, it really is fun to me no matter how cliché or seemingly anti-feminist the site is.

On the flip side, it seems like tons of people (mostly guys) spend plenty of time on Reddit.  I know it’s not a site focused on only guys, but I think it is more popular with guys vs. girls, and to be honest I can’t figure out what makes it so addicting.  To me, Reddit seems very raw and unformatted, with stupid pictures and people “trolling” one another’s posts.  At least pinterest inspires/teaches me to DO things!

Boyfriend claims that Reddit has these features as well, if you look in the right places.  I haven’t seen proof yet.  Haha.

Can someone please explain how on earth Reddit can be a value-adding website?  Or do you agree with me that it’s solely for entertainment?
