Theres no question that 2015 was filled with turmoil over at Reddit. CEO Ellen Pao made waves in April when she announced that, in order to support gender equality, all salary negotiations were being eliminated within the company. In July, Pao resigned after the organization fired a popular Reddit moderator, causing a minor revolt within the community, and a few days later, the lead engineer resigned as well.
Today, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman posted a year in review and, not surprisingly, focused on the positive changes within the organization, before commenting on the future.
In addition to discussing some new upcoming initiatives, it was also revealed that Reddit is getting into the mobile arena. An Android app is now officially in closed beta, and the iOS app will be released in the near future. There was no word on a Windows Mobile 10 app. Its surprising that one of the most visited sites on the Internet has not already embraced mobile, but as the saying goes, better late than never.
If youve been invited to the beta, wed love to hear your opinions of the app in the comments below.
