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