Instead, it chooses stuff for you — both in its daily email, and in how it builds the page for you when you visit (if you’re logged in).
Thoughts on Medium

And still, after many complaints — this is the most consistent one I see — Medium chooses poorly. It seems to choose what it wants me to see rather than what my reading habits suggest I’d like to see. It also does not differentiate between articles and comments making it difficult to see content for comment clutter in the main feeds.

The way I used to use Medium to discover other writers I can no longer do unless I have a larger chunk of time. Publications that I regularly read and liked I have to go searching for. Medium has made those community connections a hassle to maintain, all because, from my perspective, it insists on force feeding me content I have shown no interest in reading.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
