This project builds a graph of related subreddits.


Recommendations are constructed based on Redditors who commented in this subreddit, also commented to...

Play with it here:

The data

I used data from two months worth of comments (August and September of 2018) - which contains ~38 millions user <-> subreddit records.

You can find original data by following this discussion

I computed Jaccard Similarity between subreddits, and then stored results into github pages. Repository is available here. Please let me know if you are curious to learn more about this or anything else - feel free to reach out to me on twitter or via issues in this repository

Note: for very popular subreddits Jaccard Similarity didn't give meaningful results. They all were connected to each other (e.g. /r/aww, /r/pics, /r/funny and so on). I manually collected references to other subreddits from subreddit description where it was available. Where description did not include any recommendation - I looked into actual comments and used most often mentioned subreddits as "related". You can find list of all overrides in the sayit-data repository
