Reddit 2014

Views were boosted by over 8,000 active online communities and over 500m comments. – How many of those view’s were boosted by ‘The Fappening‘ incident, when the site became a ‘hub’ for unlawfully shared content of celebrities, is anyone’s guess. However, with content like The real reason the Selfie Stick was invented… #TRexSelfies (uploaded by our own web developer, Ross Hammond), the website will continue to go from strength to strength.
