How to Get Hearts

Believe it or not, not everybody belongs to Medium. I sent a link to my latest posting, “How to Write a Trilogy — With a Soundtrack,” to people I know. They read it, tried to click on the Heart, and got nothing. One said Medium told her it would send her a verification email so she could sign in, which she did. As she said, “That’s a real pain just to like somebody’s article.”

Is this the way Medium is supposed to operate? Hearts by members only? We should eschew having close friends among the great unwashed?

Anybody else run into this issue?
