How To Make Your Own Subreddit On Mobile?

Do you want to make your own subreddit on mobile? If you use the internet, you might use social media sites at some point. You’ve probably been to Reddit a few times if you have niche interests and like to talk with other people who have strong opinions. If you’ve never been to Reddit, the main difference between it and Facebook or Twitter is that instead of following people or businesses, you join communities called “subreddits.”

Every subreddit has a focus, whether it’s broad like r/funny or narrow like r/Quenya, which is about J.R.R. Tolkien’s made-up language from Lord of the Rings. About everyone has their own subreddit. If you can’t find one, you can make your own.

Planning your subreddit

Making your own Reddit community is so easy that it’s almost silly. First, you have to decide what your community will be about. Will it be about a brand like r/Samsung or r/GooglePixel, a TV show like r/ForAllMankindTV or r/WarriorTV, or a hobby like r/Gunpla or r/lego?

Once you know what you want to do, it’s time to think of a name. There are a few caveats to consider when picking out a name for your new Reddit community:

  • No one else can have the same name.
  • You can’t change it ever. Once you’ve made it, that’s the name forever.
  • It must be between three and 21 characters in length.
  • The underscore is the only special character that can be used.

After you choose a name, you’ll decide if your subreddit will be open to the public, restricted to a certain group of people, or private.

  • Anyone can use public subreddits. Anyone can join, post, and look at the information.
  • Restricted subreddits have rules about who can post.
  • Private subreddits are closed to the broader Reddit community and require special permission to join.
  • How you plan to run your community will determine which one you choose.

Lastly, if your community will be about posting adult content, you need to mark the checkbox to let people know. What is content for adults? “Adult” content usually includes things like nudity, swearing, violence, anything sexual, or anything you wouldn’t want to be seen looking at at work or in the library. Some Reddit users don’t want to see adult content, so they turn it off. If you don’t make your subreddit NSFW and post adult content, Reddit can and will change it for you.
