    Obnoxious.

    I'm there to read and really enjoy reading on Medium.

    You share or like something when........................

    You've read the article.

    Sharing is not "hard" on Medium. lol my god. Sharing and liking is earned.

    You read an article, decide it's valuable and the control is there at the end. Easy enough.

    Smashing that control persistently in someone's face before they have read the article encourages superficial sharing and likes, and makes people more prone to sharing or liking in response to headlines, 3 2 1, activate Buzzfeed Bingo.
