The 200 Top-Scoring Reddit Posts of All Time, Visualised

By Jamie Condliffe on at

There have been a mind boggling number of posts on Reddit since it was created, but which ones have done best? This visualisation shows the 200 highest-scoring posts of all time from the site.

In fact, this viz is a tree map: a means of data presentation where the area is recursively subdivided into rectangles, and the area of each one corresponds to its value. So in this case, the area of each rectangle represents the score the post got on Reddit.

You're probably straining your eyes right now, though, so it's probably best go go explore this interactive version, which allows you to click through to the post in each case, too. Sorry in advance for wasting your morning. []
