Post Flair: Categorize Your Content

Think of post flair as the neon sign above your post, instantly giving users a glimpse of what’s inside. Each subreddit has its own set of flair options, from “Discussion” and “Question” to more specific tags like “Humor” or “Fan Art.” Choosing the right flair helps users navigate the subreddit and find content they’re interested in, while boosting your post’s visibility within the community.

How to Add Post Flair:
  • Desktop: While creating or editing a post, look for the “Flair” button beneath the text box. A dropdown menu will display available options. Select the most relevant tag and voilĂ ! Your post is now sporting its new badge of honor.
  • Mobile: Tap the three dots in the top right corner of your post (or the pencil icon when editing), then scroll down and choose “Change Flair.” Pick your tag and you’re good to go!
User Flair: Let Your Personality Shine

User flair lets you express your unique identity on Reddit. It’s a small text tag displayed next to your username, showcasing your interests, affiliations, or just a witty phrase. Some communities even offer custom flair based on your contributions or achievements.

How to Set User Flair:
  • Desktop: Head to the subreddit’s main page and look for the “Community Options” section (usually on the right sidebar). Click on “User Flair Preview” and browse through the available options. Select your favorite and hit “Apply.
  • Mobile: Tap the community menu (three dots next to the subreddit name) and choose “Change User Flair.” Pick your flair and you’re done!
Bonus Round: Custom Flair for Communities (Mods Only)

Are you a subreddit moderator looking to up the flair game? Reddit empowers you to create custom flair options specific to your community. This lets you categorize posts efficiently, reward users for participation, and add a touch of personality to your subreddit.
