The social media platform, Medium, has a bright future a head of it. In February 2014, the site received its first major external investment of $25 million dollars from Greylock Partners. Now Google Ventures and dozens of individuals are investing into the website. Investors are confidant that Medium will achieve its goal of reinventing the blog as a storytelling platform.
Medium has a large chance of being the next great social media site because its founders created Blogger and Twitter. Those two social media sites had a major impact on how people communicate. The founders created Medium in order to impact how people communicate again.
“Storytelling is a very powerful element of humankind. If we can improve and somehow move forward the way people share their stories and ideas, we think that can be pretty important.”
Evan Williams, Medium Co-Founder
