Almost a week into the Fort Collins Coloradoan's change to Facebook only postings, and as predicted by many commentators, the Comments section is almost dead. Just look at this screen grab, and pay attention to the health-care story.
Normally, that story would have been very active (it's early, we'll see). The counts speak for themselves. So apparently the disconnect between the new management staff at the Coloradoan and the readers is very real. Hate to say it, but the readers told you so right? Maybe that's what management actually wants though, to kill the comments board, as it's not far enough to the right, or so many people believe.
Hey, I'm plenty willing to post under my real name, but not through Facebook is all.
