Track all your conversations

This is something that I have wanted for a long time. A tool to easily track all the conversations I am participating in around the net.

Usually, I leave a comment and keep that page in a tab in my browser, or mark the page with a “followup” tag in del.icio.us. None of these methods are perfect. Here on eirikso.com I have installed a plugin that lets you choose if you want to be notified by email when people posts a new comment on an article that you have commented on.

You won’t need any of this if you start to use coComment. From their page:

Join the conversation
Track your comments across different platforms (blogs, forums, online communities…), and follow conversations you’re interested in, no need for your own blog!

Track
coComment keeps track of all the online conversations you’re following in one convenient place, and informs you whenever something is added to a conversation.

Share
Publish your conversations to your blog in a click, or send them to your friends via email.

Explore
Check out the top commenters, what articles and posts are generating the most comments, who’s commenting on the same conversations as you.

My experience so far is very positive. Try it out!

    Hm, I have to try this out. I’ll not check the “Notify me of followup comments via e-mail” on this comment and instead try the coComment bookmarklet to see if it works. Interesting!

  2. I tried this service back when it was in private beta testing. It’s a pretty good service, but if the blog you’re tracking comments on isn’t using a mainstream blog-app (like WordPress), you’re pretty much left with the “Notify me of followup comments via e-mail”-feature.
    That was at least how it worked back when I beta-tested the service (probably 1yr+ ago).

    Co.mments is a better service, I’ve heard. Never tried it myself, though.

    I have tried it for this thread and it only shows 3 comments.

    I also tried the Firefox extension and one thing irritates me; it checks the cocomment page for updates all the time and shows it in the status bar. I don’t need to know that it looks for updates!

  4. Yes. I also made note of the fact that so far it has only tracked 3 comments for this post. I know that I have huge amounts of errors on eirikso.com and need to do some serious cleaning of my templates, but it looks strange that it tracked 3 comments and then stopped.

    Maybe we’ll have to try co.mments on recommendation from Mr. Lied.

    It works fine for me. I’m subscribing to the RSS feed they provide and every comment made to all blogs I’ve coCommented works perfectly.

  6. Things are moving…

    Lots of interesting news to reflect on this week, here’s a quick round-up: Blog column: Netzeitung has relaunched a blog column under the name Blogblick, modelled on the legendary Altpapier media news column. A simple, but effective way to engage……

  7. I’ll have to check that out. I want to do some spring cleaning and redesign here at eirikso.com pretty soon. At least I’ll add an “all-comments”-RSS at that point.

  8. Hiya, i have seen your site when searching a few weeks ago and i really love the design! I just bought a new 3 character domain (cost me a packet) for a niche review blog, and i was wondering if your design is a free or paid one? I’m new to WordPress and about to set it up, and i would really like to get something with a similar look to yours. Any ideas where i could download or buy something similar? Thanks for your help! :)

    Doesn’t FriendFeed.com have a similar, even more expansive functionality?

    If a site has Disqus comment system installed, even that can help you keep track of your comments..
