Much ado in the media
The Washington Post, the New York Times and Mozilla have all teamed up for new Web site comment system, via that Post entry (267 shares). "So long, trolls," concluded TIME's Sarah Grieco. "Should be noted these Comment Avengers did their homework, interviewing journos about comment/UGC issues (I was one)," journalist Mandy Jenkins shared. The NY Times also posted their version of that news (923 shares), which prompted Leslie Horn with Gizmodo to ask, "How can you write this story without mentioning Gawker/Kinja?"
And while we're talking social, Facebook apparently went down last night, affecting both website and apps (6,703 shares) WSJ's Gregor Stuart Hunter pointed out, "Slowclap to the Guardian for putting up a 'Facebook down!' liveblog just as Facebook comes back online."
Meanwhile, Twitter announces that SnappyTV is joining its flock. What exactly does that mean for all of us? "Brilliant! Twitter buys company that records TV shows online & lets you clip fav parts to share on Twitter," KTLA's Rich DeMuro breaks it down.
