Reddit has officially launched its own live-blogging platform by the named of Reddit Live. The platform was previously in ‘open beta’ for a few months, having covered Twitch Plays Pokemon and the conflict in Ukraine up until now.

It is said that only Reddit employees were able to create live streams and authorize trusted users to contribute to them during its beta stage. However, now anyone can user Reddit Live and submit their own threads to a dedicated subreddit. Compared to normal Reddit posts, these Live posts are said to automatically update in your browser in real-time. The Reddit Live feeds are said to feature embedded support for tweets, which can eventually host images, YouTube videos and article links.

While Reddit is not a traditional publisher, the new addition could become the default platform for user-credited live blogs. The Reddit platform has proven to be an effective crowdsource of online information, but with some difficulties since April 2013 when the website received some harsh reactions to the Boston Marathon bombings. Reddit should be careful in future endeavors if it wants its latest Live platform to steer away from such incidents in the future.
