I do not regard Medium as a “Social Media”. If I did it would be unlikely that I would bother. I see Medium as a Writer/Writing centric forum. Facebook exemplifies Social Media and I have yet to see any value or reality in it. I am NOT a Social Media fan. I am a writer and editor who works in mainstream publishing, not someone who collects non-friends or “likes”.
Nope — not a brain hack, just a forum focused on writing and writers.
