What The Star Icon On The Preview Really Means

I didn’t know it.

Medium is constantly changing its website. Recently, I discovered that all of my articles are marked with a star icon on the preview.

Moreover, when I read around the homepage, I discovered that almost every recommended article has it. E.g., this engaging one by Mary DeVries.
