Reddit blackout: why your favorite subreddits are down and what happens next

If you’ve been finding Reddit to be a little quieter than usual today, there’s a very good reason for that – most of the site’s Subreddit communities have just gone dark in protest against the site’s controversial charges for third-party app developers.

The blackout, which is scheduled to last for 48 hours from Monday, June 11, but could last longer, has seen 87% of Reddit’s subreddits – including most of its biggest ones – go down (according to the useful Reddit blackout tracker).
