AMA Frequently Asked Questions
AMAs, short for "Ask Me Anything”, are a long held Reddit tradition. Anyone with a unique perspective can come to Reddit, say who they are and what they're passionate about, and invite the larger Reddit community to ask them questions.
AMA sessions can be hosted by anyone. Some of Reddit's top AMA hosts have been: actors, producers, politicians, athletes, scientists and other subject mater experts.
An AMA is a unique way to foster direct communication and create an experience with the Reddit community.
AMAs should be utilized if you're looking to:
- Engage directly with Redditors in relevant communities
- Amplify your conversation across a broad audience
- Deepen brand advocacy and humanize your brand
- Activate on a platform that surfaces content that spreads
There are a few things as a moderator that we need to on our end to make sure your AMA goes as smooth as possible.
- Marking your Reddit account as an approved poster. This tells Reddit and our community spam protections that your account is safe, preventing comments from getting flagged for spam review.
- Gives us (the mods) awareness so we can pin your AMA to the top of the community for greater exposure.
- And allows us to plan accordingly so a moderator is online to help if you have any questions and ensure other commenters are not spamming/going off topic during your AMA.
Fill out the request form. We'll get back to you via email or Reddit direct message with confirmation.
