Is it possible for someone that I meet on a mostly anonymous site like Reddit to follow me on other sites?

Is it possible for someone that I meet on a mostly anonymous site like Reddit to follow me on other sites if I never share any usernames with them on other sites and don’t reuse the same username anywhere?

Anything is possible.

Realistic short answer: No.

Speculative long answer: If you revealed just enough about yourself that someone was able to connect the dots, maybe. If reddit was ever compromised and your user data contained IP address, emails, etc that could come back to you.

It is possible, yes. But it is not very probable (assuming your system is not compromised).

Most methods that can do this are time intensive and require a certain level of expertise. They would not be used haphazardly or against random people.
