I think I remember reading some study on social media behavior that said people are about 30% more likely to ‘like’ something if someone else has ‘liked’ it before them. — But that is more about why you should recommend your own story. You know, if you get over the whole distasteful narcissism feeling. That doesn’t explain why you can…

I actually think Medium should arrange it so that your own stories are automatically recommended by yourself. That should give that 30% more likely boost to your first reader and remove the distasteful part for a lot of people.

Writer of fiction, blogs and erotica. Frequency in that order. Popularity in reverse.
