New social networks emerge on a regular basis. While some, like Pinterest achieved success, quite rapidly, others are doomed to failure. In summer 2012, a new kind of social network will be available:Medium.com
Created by Evan Williams and Biz Stone, former employees from Blogger and Twitter, the social network is a mix of what works today: Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr ... It is a platform for sharing of content, organized into "collections".
One of the creators said: "We re-imagined the way to publish contents to evolve, based on everything we've learned in 13 years". The site is currently available by invitation only.
