Ever since the dawn of online media there has always been a place for readers to share their thoughts and opinions with the content creator, known as the infamous comment section.
The comment section has been a place that ultimately can ruin a readers view on a story, due to there being negative comments from someone else or they are just overall distracted by them to even read the rest of the article.
It has always for years been possible for readers to share their opinions on news sites and social media but recently there have been 7 organizations that have disabled that power. According to Justin Ellis's article on NeimanLab, some news organizations have stopped allowing comments directly on their articles but have started allowing them through social media like a shared posts on Facebook etc.
Social Media is becoming the new outlet for news organizations and having the comments be sent through personal accounts on twitter and Facebook etc. seems to be a very reasonable way of doing things with social media continuing to grow and advance.
