Snoo, the red-eyed alien first doodled by co-founder Alexis Ohanian is the mascot for which website?
Answer: Snoo, also colloquially known as the Reddit Alien, is the mascot of the social news site Reddit, which is illustrated as a small creature with red eyes and a single antennae protruding from its head. The Snoo was originally created by Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian as doodle and has stood as the mascot of the site since its initial launch on June 23rd, 2005. The name “Snoo” is a derivative of ’Snew.com, an early name for Reddit prior to its launch.
Reddit was founded by University of Virginia roommates Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian in 2005. Condé Nast Publications acquired the site in October 2006. Reddit became a direct subsidiary of Condé Nast’s parent company, Advance. Reddit (stylized as reddit, /ˈrɛdɪt/) is a social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Reddit’s registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links. Registered users can then vote submissions up or down to organize the posts and determine their position on the site’s pages.
