Yes or no?
2022 has been a rollercoaster ride on Medium.
Algorithm changes, the new “true follow feed”, Ev Williams stepping down as CEO, Tony Stubblebine becoming the second CEO in the history of Medium, the new tipping tool, writers quietly quitting Medium, writers joining Medium…
The acquisition of a new company.
Medium is known for its acquisitions.
Last year in quarter 4, Medium acquired two companies.
A competitor of Canva, Projector, and Knowable an audio learning platform.
And this year?
Let’s wait and see whether Tony will announce another acquisition… but I don’t think Medium will acquire a new company this year.
Tony and his team have enough to do with revamping the platform and making it more attractive for readers and writers.
Neither the acquisition of Projector nor Knowable had any immediate impact on the platform.
