WGGB.com Adds Disqus Commenting


SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) – You might notice something a bit different if you’re looking to comment on WGGB.com and the ABC40 Apps.

We have converted to Disqus which is becoming one of the most popular commenting platforms, utilized by news organizations like ABC and CNN.

Disqus allows our readers to log in with with Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Disqus and OpenID. This eliminates the need for you to create new accounts on every blog. If you choose to sign in with Twitter or Facebook, you’ll also have the option of sharing your comment with your friends on Twitter or Facebook. If you already have a Disqus profile, your avatar and commenting history on other websites will also be visible. This helps people find blogs of similar interests with the possibility of cross promoting blogs.

We also hope to improve the level of dialogue and reduce the number of inappropriate comments that tend to show themselves with anonymous posting. You’ll still have the ability to report a comment by clicking on the flag toward the right of the box.

We appreciate your patience with this change.
