life paleo social media technology

Pinterest Vs. Reddit

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?
