I received the $500 bonus. Learn from my hands-on examples to take action and get relational — because success depends on how we interact with each other.

When we were children, we all learned to ‘treat others the way you want to be treated yourself.’ That’s the Golden Rule of relationships. But do you know how this principle applies to our social interactions on Medium to make it a more ‘relational’ platform?

Alongside a series of changes throughout the last several months toward a ‘more relational Medium’, Ev Williams and the creator’s hub of Medium announced in their latest email:

‘The new homepage feed on web is primarily driven by who you follow. As a writer, readers who follow you will be more likely to see your stories on Medium.’

Moreover:

‘The who-to-follow section (…) helps readers find writers to follow. We’ve launched an update to keep these recommendations fresh, and improve writer discovery. This update led to a 25.9% higher success rate for follows, meaning more readers finding writers to follow.’
