Medium is a platform for sharing ideas and stories on a variety of different topics. Instead of sharing links, you will be sharing the entire blog articles using this service. Users click on the hearth icon at the end of each story to recommend it. It is also possible to share stories on other social networks.

 

Theory

Medium is a blog-publishing platform created by two Twitter co-founders in 2012. The platform is now known as a form of social journalism, a collection of blog articles on different topics, submitted by registered users.

Online editor is available to the users who register on Medium, with all of the formatting options and other functionalities including adding photos and videos. Users can vote for the articles published on Medium, as well as to leave comments.
