Reddit is a social news aggregator that is part of the Internet. It is known as the largest social news aggregation community in the world. The community has a community of more than 430 million active monthly users. It has always been fun to spend time on Reddit, and it always will be.
The best thing about Reddit is that you can join communities of your interest, also known as subreddits, share related stuff, read news about that, watch and share interesting photos and videos, and join discussions. Another thing that makes Reddit more lovable is that whatever you share or discuss on Reddit will be seen by people from all over the world. It’s no fun to come into the limelight when you don’t have a cool Reddit username. But if you don’t have a cool Reddit username, you can get one.
Reddit is one of the most famous social networking websites on the Internet. It’s very similar to Facebook, but with a little more emphasis on posting pictures and links to exciting websites. Here are some tips on how to change your username on Reddit.
Introduction of Reddit
This is the first time I have ever used Reddit, and it’s very simple to use. The first time you visit Reddit, you will see a lot of links to other subreddits, and you can click them to visit them. There is a subscribe button on the sidebar of a subreddit, posting rules, and similar subreddits.
This is how you interact with a subreddit. When you subscribe, it adds the top posts onto your home! Page, creating a personalised newsfeed. Next to your home page is all! Upvoting and downvoting is the rating system that is used on Reddit. Reddit is a great place to discover new subreddits. You can upvote and downvote comments and rate posts and comments.
Change your Reddit display name on your PC
Reddit has a lot of PC users rather than smartphone users, which is pretty amusing. The majority of social apps are used on smartphones, but Reddit is an exception since 51% of users use it on PCs. You can add or change your Reddit display name on PC by following these steps.
- Open the official Reddit website on your PC and sign in to your account if you haven’t already done so.
- Select the User Settings option from the drop-down menu at the top-right side of the home page.
- Your account settings will open up. Next, click on the Profile link under the Account heading.
Under the Customize profile heading, you can see the Display name option; you can change or add your display name there. You can choose a name that is no longer than 30 words, in upper case, lower case, numbers, special characters, etc.
What are my options for changing my Reddit username?
While the username cannot be changed once set, setting a custom URL for your account is possible. To do this, you need to create a new Reddit account with the desired username and then use that URL to login to your account. But the process of deleting the old account and setting up the new one is tedious. There are many different ways you can run multiple Reddit accounts; you can keep the one you have right now till the time you build up the new one exactly like your old account and after that, use the new one as your primary Reddit account, and the old one can be kept as secondary or you can just delete it.
If you want to run multiple Reddit accounts, you can follow these steps:
- Create an account on any other site using the username you want to use on Reddit.
- Login to the new account and create a new Reddit account with the desired username.
- Go back to your original account and login to your new account.
- Delete the original account.
Now both your original and new accounts are connected to each other. You can use your original account to login into your new account and vice versa. Note: To delete your old account, you have to log into the old account and click on ‘Account Settings. After that, click on ‘Delete Account’. This process is tedious but this method does have its advantages too.
