Do you consider a subreddit a community?

I believe it is but I could be biased because I own a subreddit myself. I see them as the most popular community nowadays as social media is taking over. Not as many people are visiting blogs or forums anymore. Forums are a niche market themselves and becoming less and less visited every year. It may be going up now because of COVID but it will go back down once we get our new normal.

It really depends: Are you the only one posting? No, it's not. But something like r/Sydney that has a family-vibe to it? Yeah that could easily qualify as a community.

That is true. The subreddit I own doesn't qualify as a community simply because it is all about helping people learn how to program but there are others like r/Sydney that would.

Considering some of the hateful comments you can get on a subreddit, I don't think there is a community aspect available really. I think some subreddits may have a small group of well known members but nothing like a forum as such.
