TPM Switches to Facebook Comments


In an interesting move, popular political site Talking Points Memo will begin using Facebook comments as their main commenting system. TPM Editor John Marshall explains the decision here.

“…To make an admittedly long story short, we’re switching to Facebook comments because building or maintaining our own system does not seem like a good use of our company resources and because we believe fixed identities will make the comment threads more civilized, engaging and less threatened by marauding trolls and bad (comment) actors.”
