Medium, Twitter, and Facebook

Robert Scoble writes a well thought out piece on Medium, Twitter, and Facebook, in the light of new facebook notes feature. Read it to gain a good perspective of comparative media.

I think Medium is actually more powerful than it appears and it actually belongs to a new, separate class of media. Medium blends long discussions, short discussions, quip notes, pictures, opinion pieces, facts everything in its ecosystem that neither Twitter nor Facebook can or hasn’t hitherto. Medium to some extent is like a web within a web where you can effortlessly fork “ideas” and let them jump and have lives of their own. A life that at once, can also be linked to the original piece of article of “thought” if you will.
