"Facebook makes me hate the people I know, and Reddit makes me love the people I don't." -- Alexis Ohanian, a Reddit co-founder, sharing one of his favorite quotes at the Aspen Ideas Festival. 

He added, "the more we can do to expand beyond our friend network, the more we can expand to understand people all over the world we might not necessarily interact with, I want to invest in that."
