Updates to comments section means new features for the opinionated.

Seesmic Twirl LogoWe rolled out a couple of new updates to the comments section at the end of articles which we think you will really like.

You can now add video comments rather then working your fingers. It's in partnership with Seemic. You can very quickly set-up an account (without needing to leave our page) then record a quick message via your web cam. It will be fun to see what people who read my page actually look like! In my head, you are all old with grey beards and goofy tilly hat. Prove me wrong people!

We also added the ability to embed YouTube videos directly into comments as well. Just grab the URL for the video that you like and the software does the rest.

And finally you can now add those goofy smiley faces to really get your point across.

I think that the comments are really starting to take shape. To be honest, I don't get to many and that's to be expected. I don't leave a lot of comments on many pages that I visit as well. What is interesting is the majority of people who comment on an article are people going through archived content that they find via the Google.
