The Pentagon Builds Its Own Version Of Reddit Exclusively For The Military

The U.S. Department of Defense hopes to launch a restricted user-generated content site.

The Pentagon is planning its own version of Reddit called Eureka, that will allow members in the military to share and rank stories. Rather than submitting memes and funny images, Eureka users are encouraged to send and vote on ideas that “improve training, or solve problems that plague the military and hamper efficiency.” If the concept is popular, it could end up in updated field manuals.

The website will be heavily government-controlled and access is restricted to only military personnel. The Pentagon already has its own military version of Facebook, YouTube and Wikipedia.
