Is Medium for Households and Families Something For You?

  • 2 min read

It’s nice to have a discounted monthly or annual subscription rate for a household or related group of people.

When I first read the headline ”New: Medium for Teams” I thought to myself…

Cool! Maybe Medium is also introducing family memberships.

Apparently, that’s not the case.

Medium’s new subscription model called Medium for Teams is for student groups, NGOs, and companies — not for households.

It’s geared specifically to businesses.

However, I wasn’t alone in my idea

Others asked in the comments for a similar subscription plan too.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a discounted monthly or annual subscription rate for a household or related group of people?

I know a lot of couples who are writing on this platform.

For them, it would be super cool, for instance, Jonathan Townend, RMN, and his wife or Frank Larkin.

I and my husband are also both reading (and writing) on this platform.

In addition, your kids could also get access via the Medium Family plan

Of course, each family member would have their own account.

“I don’t know that I’ve heard a big desire for a “Medium for Households” (…) it’s probably not something we’d prioritize over other initiatives, until there’s a demonstrated demand for it.” Brittany Jezouit, Chief of Staff at Medium

Is Brittany right?

Or is there a demand Medium is just not hearing?

Would this be something for you? If so, let me (and Medium) know in the comments!
