A critique of Clapping on Medium(medium.com)

    If claps were in addition to likes then fine but this just seems completely unnecessary to me. In my opinion, the whole point of Medium is to focus on the content and the reading/writing experience, why has this been interrupted with the need to applaud any and every valid point an author makes when we already have the ability to highlight and comment on particular areas of content?

    Strikes me as struggling startup trying to reinvent the like.
