Reddit users can now directly share multiple images in a single post

Reddit, arguably the most popular anonymous social network on the Internet, has long had some baffling and frustrating restrictions. One of the biggest issues is the lack of native image gallery support, forcing users to share either a single image directly on the site or to create a post linked to a third-party hosting site where the gallery was located.

LinkedIn and Reddit apps caught copying clipboard content without permission

Reddit now lets users Start Chatting in groups in real-time

Reddit bills itself as the "front page of the Internet" but it's really more like the BBS and Internet forums of old. Someone makes a post and it gets discussed and commented on to death (or until a mod closes the thread) but all of this interaction happens asynchronously. Unless you sit all day in front of a Reddit page, waiting for someone to reply or post a comment. Now you no longer have to do that thanks to a new feature that matches you up with random Redditors with presumably the same interests as you.
