Commenting capabilities powered by the very popular Disqus platform are now included in news posts. The Disqus commenting system is very easy to use and allows you to sign on using your already existing Facebook, Google or Twitter account. Alternatively, create a Disqus account using your preferred credentials and join in discussions. While it would have been great to utilize the same platform/user profiles that our forums use, the commenting capability was simply not there to enable this use.
We love your comments and feedback, so we encourage you to now use this new feature. To read or post comments, navigate to the individual news post pages as commenting is not directly available on the main news page (to conserve space). Those following our posts from other resources including RSS news readers should click on the "visit website" (or your reader's equivalent) link to read/post comments.
You can of course continue to post comments on Facebook
. Attention Facebook Followers
While we still encourage you to follow us on Facebook, you need to be aware that Facebook now shows our posts to roughly 2.7% of our followers. This problem is not unique to our site. In case you haven't noticed, following a page on Facebook has become practically worthless to everyone.
Facebook is trying to force page owners to pay to promote their posts. A short test proved that paying for this promotion does not reach the right audience and was a big waste of resources. With Facebook not showing most of the site's posts to followers, commenting on the posts was also greatly reduced. Thus, we are now hosting commenting directly on the site. Stay Up to Date
We want to keep you up to date on what is happening in the DSLR photography world. Unless you are visiting our Facebook page
regularly, I encourage you to follow the site using an alternative method. Google+
is one good way and using an RSS feed reader such as Feedly
is another great way. Or just visit the site's news page.
Feel free to use this post to log into Disqus and leave a comment to get familiar with doing so. Then share your insights, ask questions and offer suggestions!
