Just to offer another point of view, I usually get 2 to 3 times the reads from my announcements on Facebook and Twitter than I get from Medium proper. Sometimes the ratio is skewed even higher than that.

A piece I wrote about Justice Kavanaugh is the most extreme example. About 50k people from Twitter looked at, a few thousand from Facebook, and a few hundred from Medium itself.
