coComment is now becoming the one and all tool for blogosphere comments.
…I also re-syndicate the feed (del.icio.us/username/mycomments) onto my blog sidebar.
All this can be done with coComments, plus the social benefits are more explicit and focused as coComments is a specially designed bookmark/tagging system for blog comments, whereas del.icio.us is a generic social tagging system…also to note is that both these are folksonomies as anyone can tag the same URL (global tagging).
Basically it allows you to bookmark and tag the blog post you have commented on, and then discover others who have also commented on a blog post…or discover other commented blog posts with the same tag you used for some of your commented blog posts, or check out the comments a user is making in the blogosphere.
But it’s not just a bookmark collection another feature is that once you bookmark a blog post, you can see any new comments added to that blog post, this allows you to track the conversation, as a result of bookmarking it…it also offers a feed to track it in your RSS Reader.
This feature has recently been enhanced, because now it shows all subsequent comments to a blog post regardless if the commenter is registered with coComments…this is something that co.mments and Commentful had that was unique, but now it seems coComments has this and more…check it out.
Plus, now you don’t have to comment on a blog post in order to bookmark it in coComments, you can simply bookmark any blog post you like to track comments…in the end it is a comment tracker and a repository.
NOTE: If you are into just plain and simple tracking of any comments from a blog post, co.mments is a great tool, but if you want to do this and more, then coComments is your choice.
- now tracks every comment in a blog post
- now enables you to track blog posts you haven’t participated in
- if a blog post doesn’t have a comments box, you can use coComments to leave a comment, of course your comment will only appear in the coComments service…this reminds me of Webride.
Filter by type
- organise your bookmarks by type eg. blogs, forums, etc…
