When considering the various pros and cons of employing an on-site comments section, publishers can sometimes feel a bit wary of the potential burden of comment moderation that comes along with one. We totally get it—after all, the prospect of having to manually sift through and review each incoming comment is a daunting one, especially so for overstretched editorial and community management teams, as well as for sites that generate large volumes of comments.
Let's face it—you, as a Disqus publisher, don't have the time or resources to sit there and manually review each comment being posted to your comments section, do you?
Let's face it—as extraordinarily busy people, we don't always have enough time to respond to everything we see on the internet. Sometimes we only have enough time to react.
The first month of Disqus's 2022 Summer Internship is coming to an end and we thought it would be the perfect time to introduce our new additions to the Disqus team!
We took some time to ask our interns some questions to get better acquainted. First, we have your writer Imani Thompson, our Content Marketer who will focus on connecting with you all through Disqus's blogs, newsletter, etc. As our Social Media Intern, Tiarra Banks will oversee outreach through our Twitter, Instagram, and many other accounts. David Lesser will work directly with clients managing sales and current accounts, keeping our clients satisfied as the Technical Account Manager. Lastly, we have Sucharitha Vallabhaneni who will ensure Disqus's efficiency by processing anything from services to the product as our Business Analyst Intern. As we continue to acclimate to our daily roles and the business, we are finding ourselves confidently growing and enjoying the creative reign our awesome managers allow us.
Your audience is your bread and butter, it is who you publish for. The comments are a place for your users to express their opinions amongst themselves—with you leading the discussion. With so much content out there it can be difficult bringing fresh yet relevant content to your audience, how do you keep the ideas coming to match this fast-paced day and age. Have you considered leveraging that same engagement for new content?
You've probably already heard all the buzz about Facebook recently rebranding as Meta. The corporate makeover was meant to signal that the company is looking to expand outwards from social media and into the so-called "metaverse."
Helping to power some of the coolest websites on the internet is one of our very favorite things about what we do here at Disqus.
Last Monday, the digital world was rocked as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all went down for an unprecedented amount of time (about 6 hours, but it felt like forever, didn't it?) due to a combination of factors involving human error as well as a code update that went awry and prevented Facebook from accessing its own data centers.
Twitter's newest feature, Communities, is set to take on Facebook Groups, Reddit, and Discord as a viable method of creating semi-exclusive, interest-based conversations.
Here at Disqus, we’re always dreaming up tools that will help our publishers boost community engagement. A highly engaged community enjoys robust returning visitor traffic and time-on-site, two crucial performance metrics that can lead to higher ad revenue and better SEO positioning.
