Replies in Facebook Comments?

I poked around a little for see if it’s tied to CNN.com for the actual comments on their site, but this appears to not have a corresponding article yet (“breaking news” being the main piece).

So I’m curious – is this new? Is it something special for CNN? Is it a good thing necessarily?

Today, Seth Godin is Wrong. Sort of.

Innovation is often the act of taking something that worked over there and using it over here. via Seth’s Blog: Analogies, metaphors and your problem. I have a problem with the quote and the short article from whence it came. It’s just too easy – well, no, that’s not it. But it’s around there. I’veContinue Reading
