More and more moves to Facebook comments

More newspapers and blogs enables Facebook comments instead of native comment systems – what do you think about this?

Is it fair that you have to be a Facebook-user to be able to participate? I have mixed feelings for this, but I understand why they do it. Anonymous commenters have ruined the whole system and made it impossible to manage. Its not fair that a small newspaper has to employ dozens of people only to moderate the comments.

VG, a large newspaper in Norway is testing it out now on their travel-category, I’m excited to follow how people react to it.

    Jeg skrev inn en kommentar til innlegget på dagbladet, men da det kom opp at jeg måtte kommentere ved bruk av facebook-konto valgte jeg å ikke gjøre det. Jeg ønsker å forbli anonym når jeg skal kommentere på innlegg på nettsider.

    I consider my Facebook details to be private so I wouldn’t under any circumstances use my Facebook details to comment on a public forum.
