I have an account on LJ which I set up just for keeping in touch with a friend who posts there. Was really really pleased today to see that if I comment on a post on LJ and someone replies, I get an email not just telling me there’s a new comment, not only giving me the full text of the comment, but also telling me who the comment is by, and also giving me links for all these different things I might possibly want to do:
- View the thread starting from this comment
- View the thread this comment is a part of
- View all comments to this entry
- Reply at the webpage
Top marks to LiveJournal – I don’t think I’ve ever seen such excellent comment updates anywhere else! Nor have I ever seen a platform that enables you to actually view just one thread on a post – that’s just fabulous!
