In early May, DISQUS announced that the new version of their commenting system was about to be deployed. This new version brings with it a lot of news. Here are the main lines of development that have been presented to the 2012 Disqus version, provided by Blair Stover:
- Fluidity: The new and improved DISQUS is in real time. The goal is to keep the best sides of the commenting system structured.
- Quality: To promote the quality of your comments, DISQUS adds a functionality vote in the system. Beyond a simple “Like” tool, it is the rich discussions that will be promoted with this system without the less popular ‘silence’ opinions.
- Custom: DISQUS will allow users to know what is being said about their ongoing conversations wherever they may be. This personalized experience is integrated into the system’s platform itself, so that a user does not need to leave the window they are on.
- Discovery: DISQUS wants to help sites to better communicate with their audience. This new feature will highlight the most active discussions as well as the key participants of a site.
Take a look at these new features that Diqus highlight in their new commenting system:
- A New Look and Feel. It isn’t just about a site’s appearance anymore. Now you have to figure in overall integration of single features.
- User Reputation System. Disqus has plenty of users that are active and leave comments.
- User Activity Reporting in Real Time.
- Powerful Discovery Box. Disqus scours your website to find what people would like most and then threads it.
- Built In Analytics.
- Social Media Integration.
- On Site Communities Feature.
- Profile Cards that have a “Follow” Option.
