An experiment with comments

12/10/2011 5:58 PM by

We’re experimenting with an upgrade to how the comments work on some of the community blogs.

The newness adds the ability to pull in tweets and Facebook comments that relate to the post. In recent years, the discussion around blog posts has moved out off of the page, and we’d like to be able pull the conversation together better.

I also like the idea that you have the choice to more concretely identify yourself. While I highly respect everyone’s privacy, I do believe there is value in having a conversation with people that I can put a face to. This is your choice.

You have the option of commenting as previously by entering your name, email, and comment. You can also choose to sign in using your Twitter or Facebook account. If you have a gravatar set up for your email, this will display beside your name.

I would appreciate any feedback that you might have.
