We discussed comments and online news today, and you’ve done some reading on the topic as well. Please write a short blog post on how you would manage comments if you were in charge of a news site. Issues to consider:
- Would you require real names, or would you allow anonymous and pseudonymous contributions?
- Would you screen all comments before allowing them to be posted, or would you simply remove offensive comments after they had been posted?
- Would you encourage shifting the conversation to platforms you don’t control (especially Facebook), or would you try to keep it in-house?
Try to make use of some of our reading on comments by quoting and linking as appropriate.
