For me, I learn from everyone and everything--what to do and what not to do. I learned not to join medium writers' clique. These groups teach new writers how to clap stories without reading them.
I think fake clappers lack character and it shows on them. Sad, some well-established medium writers clap too without reading my story. I wonder why they are on FB.
If I don't like a story, I move one or forced myself to read it, if the writer is new on the platform.
I hope many people read for their own good. Writers read, writers read!
