Blogging Platform Medium Now Lets You Block Accounts – Slashgear

Medium, though meant for the written word, still has a very implicit social aspect. You can comment on a blog post via a pop-out sidebar, so interaction is a s key as unique blog posts. Saying they want the platform to be a safe place for everyone to share their stories and ideas, Medium has introduced the ability to block accounts. Rather than force users to suffer trolls or harassment, Medium is giving us an out. Blocking is nothing new for social platforms; all major services have some form of it. Medium was launched as a straightforward blogging platform, so theyve come around to social a bit slower than others whos purpose it was to connect people with each other, not connect readers with ideas. Medium users can block accounts when they visit a profile, or under the More tag at the top of a blog post. When you block an account, that person/people will no longer be able to see your profile, and will not be able to read your posts when logged into that account. You wont see their comments on posts, and of course will no longer see their blog posts. Blocked accounts cant follow you, nor can you follow that account. Oddly, a blocked account can still troll you.
