Reddit Co-Founder Visits BU
2/6/2014 (Updated 10:54:20 PM)The changing nature of news, information, and social interaction--
that's what packed the room and Binghamton University Thursday, as close to 500 students listened to the co-founder of one of the most well-known social media sites today.
Alexis Ohanian, the co- founder of the site "Reddit," spoke to students about the importance of spreading their ideas, and following their dreams. He also spoke on the changing trends in news media and the different ways we go about finding our news in the second decade of the 21st century.
"Now that everyone has a smart phone, we can all sort of generate news. Now it's not all journalism, but it's all news, and news content. We care as much about our granddaughter's new photo as much as we do about an important world news story. I think the platform is we're continuing to evolve," said Alexis Ohanian, Co-Founder of Reddit.
Binghamton holds a special place in Alexis' heart, as his grandparents escaped the Armenian genocide to start a life in Binghamton years ago.
