How can I check if my story has been chosen for further distribution?

When you publish a story on Medium, your story in addition to immediately being available for anyone to read on your profile page and distributed to your followers, can also be further distributed around the Medium network via the recommendation algorithm via the web, mobile apps, and the Medium email digest to other people as well. Learn more about Medium's distribution system.

You can always check if your story has been further distributed in your stats. Follow the steps below to check your story's distribution status.
