Comment tracking service coComment has announced a partnership today with U.K.-based Virgin Radio. The partnership will bring coComment’s comment tracking service to Virgin Radio’s Web site. Virgin Radio noted regarding the new relationship, "listeners to bring radio discussions online and keep these conversations alive, well after the broadcast has ended." Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Sadly coComment seems to have been lost in all of the "FriendFeedMania" currently sweeping the Valley. If coComment added social aggregation like FF has, it might be the answer for my issues with FF. coComment doesn’t steal the conversation, rather it indexes it and sends you back to the source to comment. This is the way it should be.
coComment is based in Switzerland and reports 3.5 million monthly uniques.
Comment tracking service coComment is launching two Facebook applications today. I called these applications smart because unlike throwing poop at a friend, these are actually useful.
The first application allows a user who is tracking their comments on various blogs to monitor the comments via Facebook. Of course the blogs must have the coComment plugin installed.
The second application is hot. It lets a blog owner publish comments on their blog to their Facebook feed. This can help drive traffic back to the blog. Distribution is a good thing and this helps increase visibility and distribution and can increase conversation.
I tried coComment on CN about six months ago but found that it wasn’t used enough to keep it on. With these new Facebook applications, it might be worth another look.
