Here’s my Social post for this week. As you’ve noticed, I have branched out a bit thematically with my blog. Here is a question for the blogger community, especially those on Google+. Do you have a preference where people leave comments?
–Do you prefer your blog?
–Do you a more open environment such as a social platform like, Google+, like Facebook for those of you still on that network?
This question first popped in my head when I discovered Carson Weitnauer on G+. Carson writes blog and he has disabled commenting at his blog. He prefers to have his comments appear in an open environment where everyone can see them, not the closed area of his blog. By closed I mean the ONLY way for someone to see a comment and reply is by going to the blog.
Both blog commenting and social commenting have their advantages and disadvantages.
–Which do you prefer?
–Which do you get more of?
I suppose being the social media guy I’m turning into, I SHOULD prefer social commenting, especially on a platform like, Google+. Not only does, social commenting open the web, Google+ also makes it easy to share content. By sharing, you are able to reach a wider audience. If commenting is disabled on your blog and you leave a clear reason why you have disabled it, you’ll have a better opportunity to be shared as well as receiving more social commentary.
This is still a conundrum for me.
How bout my fellow bloggers? Which do you prefer?
Can you do both without one interfering with the other?
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
