Back in my parents day anything made in Japan was considered subpar. Things have changed. The high tech Japan of today has come a long way since its tinny days of the 1950s. 

 Carry my point over to social media entity called Reddit. The social media site in its early days was tinny at best, however our friends at Columbia School of Journalism are saying not so fast on judging today's Reddit for its credibility and desire to be worthy. 

 Wikipedia defines. “Reddit is an American social news aggregation, content rating, and forum social network. Registered users (commonly referred to as "Redditors") submit content to the site such as links, text posts, images, and videos, which are then voted up or down by other members. Posts are organized by subject into user-created boards called "communities" or "subreddits". Submissions with more upvotes appear towards the top of their subreddit and, if they receive enough upvotes, ultimately on the site's front page. Reddit administrators moderate the communities. Moderation is also conducted by community-specific moderators, who are not Reddit employees. It is operated by Reddit Inc., based in San Francisco.” 

 The following article on Reddit was posted recently on the Columbia School of Journalism’s site: “The Media Today/World.

It was written by James Ball, who is a journalist, author, and fellow of the UK-based think tank Demos.
