Reddit Community Data Visualizations Trace User Behavior Patterns [Pics]
Redditviz is a map generator of subreddits that are connected by actual user behavior, and not related topics.
Within Reddit are countless subreddits or niche interests groups. Redditviz, created by Michigan State University (MSU) Computer Science and Engineering Ph.D. student Randy Olson and MSU Assistant Professor Zachary Neal, is a site that generates a map of the subreddits connected by actual Reddit user behavior and not by related topics.
Olson and Neal developed an algorithm that tracked where users posted on the site. The map generated by Redditviz helps users find other members who share their interests.
