If you are a busy blogger, or a busy reader of bloggers, you must be exhausted with openning different websites, searching the articles you commented, and checking if the conservation still going on. But now, with coComment's support, it is not an annoying problem to track all your's comments accross the blogosphere. As described by the team, there are 3 funtions worth a mention.
1. Capture:coComment supplies you facilities to manage all your comments that you let "coComment" keep track with in one place, and the work could be simply done by just clicking a button on Links column just before you press submit button. Next time you login to coComment, all the comments of those articles you participated in are supposed to be gathered together on a special page as "your conversations", and "that allows you to quickly see your comment and where it was posted, with a link to the original site".
2. Share:According to their official website, coComment also allow you to publish your comments accross the blogosphere on your own blog. Your visitors will be able to see where you have been commenting recently and learn the value you have added to those conservation.
However, on one point I am doubting, why or will visitors be really interested in where you have recently being commenting? I mean except you are a very famous man or you made so great success in certain area, people want to know every conversation you have participated in because their curiosity, otherwise, they are usualy navigated from some other place and will left your blog just after reading certain articles. So from this point of view, it does not make that much sense to publish "your conversation" on your blog, again, if your blog is not that hot/popular! But there's also an idea, if a blog is a topic oriented, you can make a topic oriented conservation on puspose, and publish them on your blog, by doing this way, i believe there is bigger chance the added-value will finally come true.
3. Alert:Since this tool is still in development status up to now, I can just get some idea from the introduction on coComment's home page. The main idea is pretty much like a notifation tool to let user know what's been added to a "particular discussion in real time".
The work the coComment group have done by now is impressive, the service is doing great and the work to convince people is also being done quite well. So, let's wait and see if it can be another "must have" for bloggers!
another idea: will it be a good idea to let users define tags for their conversations? It can ease the search in future and also enrich the "share" function: visitors can choose a tag and only the conversation related with the tag would be displayed to them.
