The True Potential of Reddit and The Coexisting Risks

Elchin KayaContent creator at Rulta8/15/22

The mission of Reddit is to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to everyone in the world, according to redditinc.com. The platform is used by 52 million users on a daily basis, making it the 9th most popular social media platform in the US. On top of this, millions of people around the world post, vote and comment on user-created boards (which are called “communities” and “subreddits”), allowing users to browse through content that is organized around their interests, hobbies and passions.

Impressive Traffic Source

Reddit is, without a doubt, a brilliant platform to use in order to reel in new views as a content creator because of the huge traffic source it provides for its users, allowing them to strengthen their online brand. In June 2022 alone, the platform generated 1.6 billion visitors, with the adult category being the second most popular category. This statistic alone proves the significant potential growth of your internet presence, if used effectively. 

Risks of Copyright Infringement

Reddit claims that an important part of its mission is ensuring users’ safety, security, and privacy. In 2021, they removed a whopping 665,898 posts and permanently banned 2813 users due to copyright infringement complaints, which reinforces the prioritization of its users’ privacy. The number of copyright infringement complaints Reddit received increased 104 per cent from the previous year, which is naturally insulting for a content creator as no one wants their brand exploited. Besides the complaints it received, Reddit claims that admins removed another 47 per cent of content compared to the year before, using their own initiative. Unfortunately, by using Reddit to promote your brand, you might be facing risks of copyright infringement.

OnlyFans Content Leaks

Reddit also regrettably has an immense OnlyFans leaks problem. Some subreddits are crammed with stolen OnlyFans content from independent creators that are viewed by hundreds of thousands of subscribers. Some people would rather morally stoop to low levels, rather than paying the creator for their services.

What Does This Mean For Your Brand?

Being a victim of content infringement could mean that your brand will be exploited, which is unfortunate for you as a content creator. You could lose out on potential earnings, but also face online scrutiny or harassment because of the societal stigma towards sex workers. Working in the sex industry is already tough enough, so as a professional, you should not have to be a victim of any sort of damage: financial or emotional. Online fraud is another danger that lurks on the darker side of the internet, so considering signing up to a reputable copyright protection service is essential for you.

Create Your Own Subreddits

According to Backlinko.com, only 62 per cent of Reddit users agree that the platform protects their privacy and data. This is why we strongly recommend you create your own subreddit which allows you to moderate and submit posts yourself. This way, you have absolute authority over your content that is posted on Reddit and you can monitor comments closely.
