Reddit down: Site not working and failing to load for some users
Reddit has stopped working for some of its users.
The site, which describes itself as the front page of the internet, is not loading properly for some people who visit it.
Thousands of affected users complained on rival social networks like Twitter that the site was failing to appear.
But others are able to access it as normal.
Some also found that visiting the "old" version of the site – which can be accessed through a special URL – worked when the newer one did not.
Outage tracking website Down Detector showed a steadily climbing number of reports in recent hours, with huge numbers of people complaining they were unable to access pages.
Problems were particularly reported from Europe and the US, but that may simply reflect the location of people who were attempting to access the site.
Reddit's official page was first updated to indicate it was aware of the issue. Later, another update was posted to indicate the "issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented".
