Steve Huffman Comes Back to Take Charge of Reddit; Makes Changes in Content Rules as First Step
Reddit, is not the first company where the founder is coming to its rescue during troubled hours. It has happened earlier with Apple, as Steve Jobs walked back in its darkest hours and with Zynga this April, with a comeback of Mark Pincus as the chief executive.
Steve Huffman, the co-founded of Reddit is the recent one to come back to the online message board and may have a tough situation to handle. He has been away from the company for long six years but reappeared last week on Friday as the chief executive.
Reditt, which started as a message board online where users could post almost anything and everything and start discussion on any topic, has off late been struggling with a sequence of slip-ups which caused some of the users to lose confidence. At the crisis moment, Mr. Huffman walks in to make an effort to win user confidence and to put a leash on the kind of content that the website will allow.
On Thursday, the San Francisco based company proposed a new set of content policy for its site which will be helpful in banning spam, harassment, illegal activity and will also block posting of "private or confidential information".
