Just putting out a brief note on this right now. When I started to blog, a couple of months ago, the Jeph Maystrucks of the world told me “You must get readers to post comments. It has to be interactive”. I’m not so sure. Being from a traditional media background that predates the whole cyberworld by many years, my experience has not been geared in this direction.
Reading news stories and blogposts, and the comments that follow, I have to say I have some serious doubts about the value of the comments.
Lots more to come another day when I have more time. But what do you think? On this point at least, I would love to hear from you.
