A fresh look for your Medium homepage

A new Medium.com designed to help you discover stories that inspire and inform, now easier than ever before.

The Medium homepage is the place to go to quickly see the latest from your favorite writers and publications on the topics that matter to you most. So today, we’re excited to share a refreshed homepage that will make it easier than ever for you to find great stuff to read.

Let’s cut to the chase so you can start exploring. Your homepage is divided into three sections: featured stories at the top, a section of personalized stories for you beneath, and a right sidebar with quick links. Here’s what you need to know as you navigate your new Medium.com.

Featured stories, front and center.

Featured stories live at the top of your homepage and highlight the stories that matter most at any given moment. They’re handpicked by our curators throughout the day, so you can always check back for something new.

Personalized suggestions with more of what you love.

Below the featured stories of the day, it’s all about you. You’ll see pieces from topics, publications, and authors you follow (you can always fine-tune your interests here), as well as browse recommended stories we think you might enjoy.

Quick links to get caught up fast.

On the right-hand side of your homepage, you’ll find handy links to stories you might enjoy now or later.

  • “New from your network” — features recently published stories from writers you follow. It’s the easiest way to stay connected to your favorite voices on Medium.
  • “Popular on Medium” — shows you the most read stories in the last 24 hours, so you’ll always know what’s rising to the top in the Medium community.
  • “Reading List” — shows everything you’ve recently bookmarked. Every story on Medium has a bookmark icon next to it, so if something catches your eye, you can save it for later, and it’ll show up here.

We hope you enjoy using the new homepage — iOS and Android updates coming soon. In the meantime, let us know what you think, and what else you’d love to see.
