Thunderclap is not connected to reddit, or do you see reddit as another social network? Thunderclap is used to make a big impression on a lot of people.
The big difference between Facebook(twitter, Instagram) and Reddit in this instance is that Reddit does not have followers or something of the kind, Reddit is a weaker version of Narrative in my eyes.
Facebook has followers of some kind. When I post something it reaches totally different people compared to when @Emily Barnett should post something. That's the strength of Thunderclap all these followers combined.
I think females (sorry to assume your gender) need aesthetics more compared to man.
