On Monday, April 4, potential investors looked for Reddit IPO plans. Last year, it was reported that the social media discussion forum was looking to go public and since then, people have remained hooked on the updates related to Reddit.
When is Reddit going public?
This is probably one of the most searched questions regarding IPOs. It is expected that Reddit could go public in 2022. However, there is no official announcement from the company about its public debut date.
Last year, Reddit had reportedly said that its IPO would take place after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) completed its review process.

It appears that market conditions are not stable at the moment. Therefore, it would be worth watching if the company came up with an IPO announcement. At the time of drafting, details like the number of shares and price range for the listing were unknown.
