Reddit, which has not reported an annual profit since its launch in 2005, attracted investors by positioning its content as a training ground for artificial intelligence (AI) programs.


Last month, Reuters revealed that Reddit secured a data licensing deal with Google worth approximately $60 million annually.

While Reddit primarily relies on advertising for revenue, it highlighted AI as a growth area during its IPO marketing roadshow.


The company also disclosed that the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is investigating its AI data licensing deals.


"At our core, we are a growth company. Achieving our mission means that we aim to expand our user base and community," stated Jen Wong, Chief Operations Officer at Reddit.
