Lemmy is similar to sites like Reddit, Lobste.rs, or Hacker News: you subscribe to communities you're interested in, post links and discussions, then vote and comment on them. Lemmy isn't just a reddit alternative; its a network of interconnected communities ran by different people and organizations, all combining to create a single, personalized front page of your favorite news, articles, and memes.
Each server can set its own moderation policy, to help foster a healthy environment where all can feel comfortable contributing.
With Lemmy, you can easily host your own server, and all these servers are federated (think email), and connected to the same universe, called the Fediverse. For a link aggregator, this means that someone registered on one server can subscribe to communities elsewhere, and can have discussions with people on a completely different server.
New comments and posts stream in to your front page and inbox; No more page refreshes required.
(+/-)like old Reddit.
