Medium is a social publishing platform that allows anyone to share ideas and perspectives that matter. The online publishing platform is developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams. But medium is different from twitter. It’s a way to publish writings and documents longer than Twitter’s 140-character maximum.
When you first log in Medium, they’re barely recognizable as blogs. Instead, they’re designed more like a magazine. On the home page you’ll find different popular articles written by a wide variety of people. In general, these articles tend to lean toward topics like technology, design, programming, or creativity.
Medium’s team are trying to make it as easy as possible for people who have thoughtful things to say. Medium is also a place where people can write their stories.
Write Your Ideas
At Medium, using world-class editor will make writing simple and fun. Once you create an account, you’ll get your own page that looks a lot like a blog and you can start writing. With publishing tools, you can write, share anywhere.
Medium allow people to follow people and topics that matter to them and receive a personalized feed of content every day. Readers can join in the conversation by highlighting, recommending, or responding to posts.
Medium Are Great for Discovery
Thousands of people share their ideas and perspectives. Posts range from scrutinies of world affairs to deeply personal essays. With Medium, you can discover and follow your favorite writers and the stories that matter to you. Beyond that, Series–mobile stories can be added over time and unfold card can be readed with the tap of your finger.
Participation To Responses
Medium encourages participation and a diversity of opinion. At medium, making responses to authour is very funny to connect readers and writers. Every reponses you leave will change the way others interpret the story.
In March 2017, Medium announced a membership program for $5/month offering access to “well-researched explainers, insightful perspectives, and useful knowledge with a longer shelf life”, with authors being paid a flat amount per article. Through the support of members, there will be a better place on the internet: an ad-free, open platform for writers and thinkers around the world.
Medium has been focusing on optimizing the time visitors spend reading the site (1.5 million hours in March 2015), as opposed to maximizing the size of its audience. As of May 2017, Medium.com had 60 million unique monthly readers, according to the company.
Overall, I think Medium is a must app for reading.
