That guy made a perfect summary why you shouldn't use it !

For those unaware of Medium's ambitions to be the next Facebook... it's worth noting that there're excellent de-centralised open source alternatives - the best I've found is Plume -

@valere @framasky C'est ça, en gros :
- plus de 2 admins pour gérer le serveur en cas de souci
