Reddit has announced OpenAI as its new advertising partner.

As part of the collaboration, the social media giant will offer its content and new products to ChatGPT to help users discover and engage with Reddit communities.

To do so, the AI company will access Reddit’s Data API, which provides real-time, structured, and unique content from the platform.

Reedit Co-Founder and CEO, Steve Huffman, continued: “Reddit has become one of the internet’s largest open archives of authentic, relevant, and always up-to-date human conversations about anything and everything.

“Including it in ChatGPT upholds our belief in a connected internet, helps people find more of what they’re looking for, and helps new audiences find community on Reddit.”
