Fun fact: We once had a bug on Product Hunt that allowed people to upvote a product an infinite number of times. Perhaps we were (accidentally) ahead of our time. 🤔

@rrhoover can we put that bug back in place please?

@rrhoover - Medium stopped counting my claps after 50, so they have a cap, right?
@rrhoover @sushdagr8 Oh yes, in that case, they do.
@rrhoover 👏👏👏👏👏
Lots of people will have seen the branding updates recently... now the app is updated in the appstore too! Oh and we all know about 👏 Medium is easily one of the best things I purchase on a monthly basis. A Medium post on the Partner Program

@bentossell I hope they offer a "read it for me" premium subscription feature too. I just don't have enough time in the day to consume all that content!
@chrismessina yeah hope so!
It would be nicer if it showed the number of readers that clapped, though. At least in the writer's stats page. Just for the sake of knowing your audience.

@kristianmuniz I believe @Ev indicated in a comment on medium that more detailed stats are coming, and that because the 👏 data point can occur anywhere in a post, it will eventually lead writers to understanding more about what specific parts of a post resonated most with readers.

@isaacnaor interesting because I personally like/clap after reading the whole thing.
@alexyoungkwon seems like the biggest problem is a legacy issue, whereas people that have posts with lots of “recommends” feel like the value of the “recommends” changed, and their work’s value is lower (almost like it experienced some kind of inflation). Life lesson: Change is the only constant
@kristianmuniz The author of a post *can* see the number of readers who clapped. Click the clap count on a post for a breakdown.

@kristianmuniz It does show that if you click on the number. It opens a modal with the total number of claps from how many individual people. As a writer of a post, this modal also shows you how many claps each person gave you.

It's all about the claps. 👏👏👏 Medium created an emoji-based economy for content creators to earn money.
