Radio Interview: The Conundrum of Closing Comment Sections

Viafoura CEO Jesse Moeinifar sits down with Lee Sterry from Newstalk 610 CKTB on the VIP Late Lunch radio show to discuss the importance of keeping your comment sections alive and well (…moderated that is!).

In case you were considering removing comments, here’s some food for thought:

A recent survey from the Associated Press of Media Editors confirms that 71% of editors are keeping their comment sections, and we agree! Not only does commenting provide the highest level of engagement on-site and across social media but it’s extremely valuable to your organization’s bottom line.

But how do you keep the trolls and haters at bay and turn online conversations in a positive and civil direction? Jesse explains how newsrooms can leverage Viafoura Smart automated algorithmic Moderation (SaaM) to save the day and protect your comment sections.
