Next step of an exciting new phase and the Partners Program
Medium 3.0 is a place to read and write, now with a Partner Program so you can make money sharing your stories.
Some of the best quality content, neatly structured, soothing to eye, and amazing brandingCons:
I love everything about Medium, including the pace and direction of its growth
Content serves for education, decision, and delight and Medium lives up to this one hundred percent. I love the findability, personalization, engagement opportunities, branding flexibility, and the brilliant "shout from the terrace" feeling when I write and read content.
Publishing platform is beautiful, easy to use, and free. Easily the best such platform out there.
However the content is very weak and the curation is even worse. The form of writing needed to succeed on Medium os very poor writing and can be stressful to read. Platform rewards writing every day rather than substance in an article so baseless content is promoted.Cian O'Connor has used this product for one year.
Beautiful branding, high-quality engineering, innovative product designCons:
Navel-gazing content, echo chamber effect, frequent pivots
I've loved Medium since the beginning, and stuck with them through multiple strategic shifts. Personally, I'm disappointed that the 'platform for media companies' model didn't take off. I would've loved seeing more publishers like The Awl and their ilk producing world-class content, supported by the technical prowess of Medium. But alas, that didn't pan out. Still, I'm happy to subscribe and see my money going toward creators.Cole Kennedy has used this product for one year.
Clean, simple, powerful. Everything we want doopoll to be.Cons:
Not really. I love it!
Would be great if Medium could auto suggest stock imagery based on the content you're writing.
Feels cleaner, especially the homepage where I check interesting articles each day. Also like the clap feature.Cons:
None for now
Overall, still feels the same Medium I've liked since the beginning.
Great UI and UX for readersCons:
Poor UI, UX and monetization for writers
Medium is a great way to publish stories, but not at all a monetization platform for content.
A perfect blogging platformCons:
None to mention
A great medium to reach out larger audiences.
