2018 has been a tremendous year for us at TapChief. This year, we launched the Insights Feed, a place for professionals to share their experiences, learnings and gain knowledge from other domain experts.

TapChief Insights has gotten an amazing response so far. Over thousands of posts have been published by hundreds of professionals. The Insights Feed became a ground to learn and grow.  There have been some personal experiences, some significant research, some display of professional experience and a few weird ones shared among the 60,000+ TapChief professionals and we are glad to see the conversations these posts have generated.

We can’t possibly do justice to all the amazing posts TapChief Insights have had. However, as the year comes to an end, we’ve rounded up the top articles from different categories which have got highest upvotes, views, comments, shares etc.
