Facebook and Twitter are very popular and there’s good reason for them to be the world’s favorite social networks. But it doesn’t mean that they’re the only ones out there. Yes, there’s Instagram and Tumblr, but you know about their existence already. Let’s check out 3 other social networks that are worth keeping an eye on.
Twitter’s extension, Medium
Medium is actually a blogging site, but founders say that it’s like an extension to Twitter. Medium allows you to share your ideas and stories to everyone. It’s not just for your friends to read, but for the entire world to know. Also, you should input more than 140 characters as the site prefers quality over quantity. When you write a blog post, it’ll appear in one of Medium’s collections. The prominence of your post depends on the votes it gets from users. If you have a Twitter account, you can go to Medium and begin reading. You can also vote. For now, you need an invitation from the people at Medium so you can post. It’ll soon open up for everyone to use.
