Welcome to the Future: Get the Lowdown on Our New Facebook Commenting System

itemprop

Today is the dawn of a new era for City Pages. We're switching to Facebook commenting.

You're on Facebook all the time already. Why log into a new system so you can comment on City Pages' articles that inspire, provoke, and let you know what's happening around the Twin Cities?

We've had some issues with our previous commenting system, so now we're streamlining the process for our readers. More than half of you already use Facebook to log into our site, and we want to make it even easier for you.

What's new?

  • Facebook requires all commenters to have a Facebook account in order to comment. (Sorry, tweeps!) This means less anonymity, but it also means there will (hopefully) be fewer spammers and faceless trolls taking up valuable space in the conversation.
  • Our comments section got a makeover. Check it out below.

  • You can keep commenting directly on Facebook... but now you can also comment through Facebook at the end of each of our blogs, too.
  • You'll also be able to opt in and also post your comment(s) to your Facebook if you so choose. If you don't want to, no worries! There's a check box at the bottom of the comment box that you can click if you also want to share on your personal account.

Now that we've given you the low-down on the new system, be sure to let us know what's working and what's not in our brand new comments section.

We know you have a lot to say.
