    It turns non-affiliate links into affiliate links, for places like Amazon, etc. A brilliant business tactic, as that revenue is just sitting there. They're going to make a fortune.

    "...approximately five thousand merchants (Amazon won’t be included)"

    That's according to the first sentence in the link

    Useful to see who exploits it first and does something like this guy did with Uber.

    Yeah it seems like a wicked revenue method. I could imagine them adding a couple more million dollars to their annual revenue.
    Which brings me to my question...is Reddit on the stock exchange?

    Reddit or Imgur needs to find a way to let users monetize their Reddit activity.

    They are using Viglink! :p

    They'll fail in this attempt for sure.
