Reddit is kicking off app digest season with its second annual personalized digest. This year, users’ summaries include an auto-generated trading card representing them and their Reddit experience in 2022.
Reddit Recap includes auto-generated trading card
Like other roundups, Reddit’s packs a lot of personalized data to help users reflect on their year on the platform. They can see things like their most liked comment, how much they’ve scrolled, measured in bananas (well, what Reddit calls “Standard Banana Units”), and whether they’re on team cat or team dog.
“Superpower Reddit Ability” assigned based on karma
But at the end of the recap, users also get a “Superpower Reddit Ability” and are given a Rare, Epic, or Legendary rating based on how much Reddit karma they’ve earned. The higher the rating, the better the background for the card; the “Legendary” backing has a multicolored gloss. The map also shows things like the three communities users have visited the most and their username and avatar.
The trading cards are a clever twist on shareable digests, as users’ social feeds are often filled with Spotify Wrapped images at this time of year. The cards also give users a good excuse to show off their avatars of Reddit’s Snoo mascot (including the NFT avatars, so users can see some people trying to bow).
Reddit’s summary feature launches on mobile and desktop
Reddit’s 2022 recap feature launches Thursday on the mobile app and desktop. Reddit also shared some information about the platform as a whole.
