Let’s appreciate the Currency of Medium
“Meaningful Interaction is the Currency of Medium”
I hope so, Graham Anderson, that’s one of the things I 💖 about Medium.
Love your suggestions, and I’d like to add:
Read the articles of others,
Comment on them in a meaningful way,
Recommend them – if it’s genuine
Do all of the above, regardless whether they have commented or 💖 your post or not.
Someone’s got to start the interaction — and this currency is freely available to all of us. We can generate it ourselves.
But your advice at the end:
“If you don’t like anything, click any random article (of theirs)…and 💖 it.”
You say:“A single non-commital click means almost nothing.”
Not true. A single non-commital click means a lot. It means the devaluation of the Currency of Medium that’s so rare and precious to us.
