The Future of Medium

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

The Story Behind Medium

medium4(medium.com)

Medium was created to eliminate the need for bloggers to also be marketers. The website focuses on delivering great stories and ideas which  will make a large impact on people’s lives. It markets for you because it creates a list of posts that are relevant to you. Those posts are from all the people in your target audience. The website is still in its beginning stages so the number of features and availability is low. However, the site has been recieving a lot of positive reviews from writers.

“For a vast majority of people, Medium will have a higher return-on-investment for writing than one’s own blog”

Evan Williams, Medium Co-Founder

Medium: Where Writers Collaborate & Create

medium1

 

The publishing platform, Medium allows writers to share their stories and readers to get lost in them. The website is special because it allows writers to collaborate. Users can give and receive feedback on everything posted, unless the author makes their work private.

“Medium is designed to allow people to choose the level of contribution they prefer. We know that most people, most of the time, will simply read and view content, which is fine. If they choose, they can click to indicate whether they think something is good, giving feedback to the creator and increasing the liklihood others will see it”                                                                                                                                                                                                 Evan Williams, Medium Creator
