The 16 greatest Reddit voting GIFs of all time
On social news site Reddit, a post lives and dies by the votes it receives. The more orange up-arrows each one receives, the higher probability a post has of reaching the coveted front page of the site. By contrast, with too many blue down-arrows, a post becomes increasingly irrelevant, buried beneath hundreds, if not thousands, of other submissions.
