Highlighting is one of the most exclusive and powerful features of Medium. Unleash its power to boost your presence in the community by:

  • Connecting with the author, showing him or her specific appreciation. They’ll likely receive notifications about it.
  • Connecting with readers who will read. They’ll see your highlights and likely relate.
  • Connecting with readers who already read. They’ll likely receive notifications about your similar highlights.

But please don’t highlight randomly or your own stories. This is about connecting, not spamming.

And, since the best part of Medium is the community, if we can connect more, why not?
