I’ve been using CoComment lately to track my blogosphere conversations.
The service is great – I always used to find myself wondering what blog writers would think of my comments, and if they would respond. And of course, I would never remember where I had left my digital breadcrumbs, and so was destined for disappointment.
There is one problem, however, and one addition I’d like to see.
The problem occurred when I had CoComment installed both on my own blog (running WordPress) and in my browser. The result: the comment would get submitted to CoComment, but not to my site … meaning that I could not comment on posts on my own blog. I had to disable the WordPress plugin so that comments would submit and be saved.
One feature request
A very cool feature would be the ability to allow your conversations to be publicly visible. Currently, if you have an account, your conversations look like this:
It’d be a very nice feature to make that publicly available at some simple URL determined by your username … something like cocomment.com/conversations/johnkoetsier
Then people would be able to see sites that you’re visiting and sites that you care enough about to actually comment on … which I think would be a very interesting indicator to know about someone, and would help people find blogs relevant to their interests.[tags] blogs, cocomment, conversations, tracking, responses, flock, firefox, john koetsier [/tags]
