Late last year I told you about a service that I was trying out to keep up with places that I’ve commented— since the most difficult thing about commenting is keeping up on all the conversations that you’ve entered. You see, not everyone provides the e-mail subscription option that you find on this blog, so it’s sometimes hard to remember every place I visited to go back and keep up with what as said.
Then I had some trouble. For some reason I was having difficulty running the coComment Firefox extension. And then I was having trouble with it on my blogs.
A few weeks ago I saw that they had an updated version, so I decided to re-enable the plugin and I saw that it was working again! So, I’m coCommenting around the blogosphere again.
What’s neat is that they’ve also improved their site with more AJAX (that’s where the whole page does not have to repaint, just the section you clicked on). It’s much easier to keep up with conversations now.
Here are some of their other new features:
- My Community: View the activity of people and groups you are connected to, while maintaining control over who you bring into your group conversations
- Share any content with just two clicks with your friends, community or the social Web (digg, twitter, del.ic.ious and other social applications)
- Stay connected with friends, groups and favorites through monitors and updates of your conversations on blogs and articles anywhere on the Web
- Multi-Conversation Side Bar: a two screen split provides a new way to navigate through conversations and the Web and control everything from one page, enabling people to see both previous comments and current conversations
- Comment anywhere: even on sites and blogs that don’t enable commenting
And there are also widgets, like the one that’s now on my site, that let you see where I am commenting so you can come and join in the conversation.
If you haven’t tried out this tool, you should!
