My technology news site, digitl, officially opens for business on Monday morning. We started running news stories this week in preparation. If you haven’t already been there, please take a look.
Two readers contacted me asking if I could put social media sharing buttons on the site. The theme I use has a baked-in ”tweet this post” button that doesn’t look too awful, but in general I worry social media buttons clutter up designs without adding much value.
Do buttons still work for media sites – what do you think?
And what about comments? Are comments useful on the site or would I better off using something like Disqus or finding a way to integrate, say, Google+ discussions with posts? I’ve seen arguments for and against these ideas and others as well.
What do you think?
