If Facebook is the quiet suburban enclave of the social media universe, then Reddit is the formerly abandoned, derelict slum...reclaimed by a volatile (but thriving) community of bohemians, cyber-anarchists and sketchy opportunists who just need to lay low for a while.
The rest of us? We're just tourists.
OK, the metaphor is a little melodramatic, but there is no questioning that Reddit is a completely different beast than Twitter or Google Plus.
Reddit is all about message-board-driven, online communities where opinions and content are shared on everything from current affairs to bizarre hobbies. There are a surprisingly high number of enthusiasts.
And one of the most fascinating events promoted by Reddit is the AMA (Ask Me Anything). The AMA gives the masses an opportunity to literally fire off any question at a celebrity, who responds in-kind.
Essentially, the AMA is like an online chat with one of ESPN's talking heads, but without any supervision.
As you would expect, people will ask insane questions, but the sessions also provide plenty of interesting information about the participant.
Some of the biggest names in sports have jumped headlong into an AMA, giving fans plenty to chew on about their personal life and career.
These are 45 interesting things we found out from athlete AMAs.
