Reddit’s first trading day success reflects investors’ belief in the platform’s growth potential. However, the fact that Reddit still has a net loss of more than $ 90 million creates an environment of concern for newly public companies.

Despite these concerns, Reddit has some significant advantages. The platform has 430 million active users and revenue sources such as advertising and subscriptions. Reddit also has strong brand recognition and a loyal user base, which could be an important factor in the platform’s future growth.
