The votes have been tallied and the numbers crunched: 2013 was a monster year for Reddit—especially for news junkies and Canadians. This year Reddit collected 56 billion pageviews, an increase of 19 billion over last year. It also netted 731 million unique visitors, almost doubling the number from 2012.
