New York Times Elevates Comments From Below the Line
Posted: 7/30/2013 | By: Sarah Marshall | journalism.co.uk
The New York Times is trying something new with comments: placing key reactions alongside the story narrative.
The news site trialled the experiment for the first time on Saturday (27 July).
The move is part of the title's efforts to make comments more useful for
readers, Marc Lavallee, a deputy editor of interactive news at the New
York Times, told Journalism.co.uk.
