Description

Medium is made for you: people who are genuinely curious about the world and your part in it. From opinion pieces to interviews to in-depth reportage, photography, and features, Medium stories take many shapes, but always leave you with greater insight into the world. Our app features a clean reading experience designed to let you focus on the story (without an ad in sight) wherever you are, from your commute to your couch. You can read a select number of stories for members each month for free — or subscribe for $5/month for unlimited access. HOMEPAGE: The sheer volume of information on the internet can get to be too much. So in our app, we curate stories based on your personal interests and our editors’ picks of the best of the day. COLLECTIONS: Our editors package the best stories on Medium into multi-part collections that you can binge-read or savor over time. You can explore expert columns, multi-author anthologies, comprehensive explainers, and our monthly magazine. READING: Our app is designed to let you focus on the words. Bookmark stories to your reading list. Join the conversation by writing a response. Clap for stories to show writers your appreciation. If there’s a particular passage that intrigues you, highlight it for posterity. MEMBERSHIP: With a free Medium account, you get access to all these features — including all free stories on Medium — plus a select number of stories for members per month (the ones with a star next to them). If you upgrade to become a Medium member, you’ll get unlimited access to everything Medium has to offer: the smartest and most ambitious stories from the sharpest writers on Medium, audio versions of popular stories, and more. All for $5/month or $50/year. WRITING: For writers, we know inspiration knows no bounds — you can compose a new story on the go and then switch easily to your tablet or computer without a hiccup. Your Medium membership will automatically renew each month, and you will be charged $4.99 through your iTunes account within 24-hours prior to the end of the current monthly cycle. You can turn off auto-renew at any time from your iTunes account settings up until 24-hours before the end of the current period, but refunds will not be provided for any unused portion of the term.

    And see that I am allowed to read 3 articles a month. I quit using software trials for 30 days. Not enough time. I read two articles earlier today. Looks like it could be interesting, if only you weren’t so, what, greedy? Cheap? Afraid to let your (possibly) fine product shine thru? At least you have my email address! Now you can bombard me with useless crap. Guess I will find my third article, so I take fullest advantage before I delete you. Please feel free to respond if you grow the gonads to allow us to find if you product is worth the money. I would be happy to explore, instead of just salivate.

  • Destroyed the integrity of premium content

    Unless medium lets people see the comments on their premium content when they look at such content, they have destroyed their former legitimacy by not showing the comments that argue against a given article in the global quest for truth. I gave one additional star than the minimum because they still have non-premium content that allows people to comment and bring more truth to the table, but the most high profile political posts which are destroying democracy with making people on that side think they are right, Medium no longer continues their role in fighting echo chambers.

    As someone who is as much concerned with the beauty of how words appear on a page (which is an art in and of itself), I wish there were more options for fonts, column and photo layouts, and other graphics, similar to what's available on blogging platforms like WordPress. Connecting to readers (and money making opportunities) makes Medium far better than any blogging platform for a writer. It's a community. You're not writing in isolation. A popular writer can attract readers to one's own work given the way Medium connects similar material. I just wish I were more able to adjust the way my writing appears on the page.

    Medium opens the aperture of ideas, subjects and experiences. Highlighting content of potential interest based on a reader’s expressed curiosity and actual (historical) reading in tailored email is useful. It would improve the experience if the Medium app responded upon opening by presenting the content to which the email link referred instead of the general landing page of featured content. ... Unless, of course, Medium’s app is yet another user data collection, aggregation and profiling tool to fuel a earnings. In that case, I suppose dropping users, like mice, in a lobby of cheeses and seeing which one attract them is perhaps more telling than the cheese for which the mice asked. In that vein, it would be quite useful if Medium were to allow (within any given user account) the ability to establish ‘user personas’ for let’s say pleasure reading, research, ‘political me,’ philosophical exploration, etc. Advertisers and other monetization ‘engines’ would eat that stuff up: refined, self-selected and clearly differentiated profiles depicting personal preferences and decision ‘drivers.’ Snarkasm aside, there are some there are many other aspects of Medium that are worthy of my time (and yours) that are likely more useful and fulfilling than the interminable drivel that is FB among other (anti)Social media platforms. And the gates of entry for expression by writers on quite a swath of topics and genres is wide open. Extinction of sources and content (so far) is apparently driven by reader interest and quality of content and presentation, both of which rate high on my priorities for devoting the time to read. I rate Medium highly for that reason! Medium, let’s keep it that way: no censoring at the ‘gates,’ no preferential exclusion of non de rigueure ideas and content just because it’s strangeness feels...strange! And most of all, no data spills and PII data sharing. Dare to be as different as your content model!
