While I was driving from Pearson Airport to Niagara Falls for a district retreat, I was listening to a podcast called Net@Nite that is hosted by Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur. Amber mentioning adding Facebook Connect to her comments on her website, and Leo found out that Facebook Connect was also integrated into Disqus.
Now, all of that might mean nothing to some of you. In simple terms, you can use your Facebook login to post comments. This allows for the comments section to be more of a discussion community rather than simply a place to agree or disagree with my posts.
Also, with the format Disqus has, you can reply directly to someone’s comment and have a discussion with that person. You aren’t tied to simply discuss the blog post! Freedom!
One of my main goals with this blog is to have discussions about the mutual influence of children’s ministry and culture as well as where children’s ministry needs to go in the 21st century. I am hoping the changes in the comments section will facilitate more conversations as we continue to figure out how to best create culture as we minister to kids and their families.
So, c’mon and try leaving a comment using your Facebook login!!! Let me know how you like the new comments setup. Do even care?
