You have probably noticed two situations that no one can answer in your stories, the first is that when you just publish a story your followers and reading lovers view your story and a part of them read the story, and the second thing is that. a small part clap your stories; but clappers give 1 to 3 claps even though the Medium platform has defined that each Medium member could applaud a story from 1 to 50 times.
Today I want to explain to you why your followers and not only they do not accept to give up to 50 claps.
Clapping is a taste effect, so when someone likes your story, it claps your hand to say congratulations, I like the story, and another because that person became a fan according to the Medium platform rating. But if anyone liked the story why give only 1, 3 or even 7 claps if it can give up to 50 claps?
Prior to October 2019, Medium paid its members based on the amount of clapping; The more clapping a member received on impulse from his story, the more money that member earned, and that’s exactly where the issue comes in. Many Medium members to this day do not know that there has been an update to the platform earnings guideline and continue with the idea that the more clap a member gets in their stories, the more they will earn, so that leads readers not to clap too much. to make others not earn that much.
Let me make you understand: I am a competitor, the platform pays everyone, and pays through a factor that is clapping, if I clap more, the more he wins, but that person does not return the clapping to help me either, so I. I do not give the clap deserved, although your story is something that helped me in a life or death situation, this is how it works: so if you noticed it with your stories, do not do the same, because if you get 3 claps, there is. a likelihood that you are a person who also does this to other users.
Now you know that
Medium no longer pays by clapping, you can clap your hands on stories, this writer will no longer win based on the clapping you gave.
It is true? And when did that change?
In October 2019, Medium updated the earnings guidelines, if members were clapping for their stories, they would now earn by reading their stories, and the more people started reading their stories, the more members would earn money from them. your stories.
So now that you’re already into the story, if you like a story, you can clap your hands, as this would also help spread the word for more people to reach, and even if the gains were from the amount of clapping, it was normal. give up to 50 claps, because in the end the writer deserves a reward after you learn about what he wrote, because neither you nor he loses because everyone contributes to the platform gains as a Medium member.
Let’s help each other grow within Medium, make stories become stories.
