Reconsidering Comment Sections

Lunchtime Talks

Do you ever leave comments on the stuff you watch, read and listen to? If not, you’re in good company. Hardly any of us reach the bottom of the pages we’re reading, let alone leave comments on what we consume. Publishers don’t like comment sections either: they chomp up staff time and mess with content creator mental health.

Sammy Jones is reconsidering comment sections as part of Bristol and Bath Creative R&D. She’s a New Talent Fellow who thinks comment sections could be a positive opportunity for audiences and makers, not just a pain in the neck. Join us to find out where her research has got to so far, and bring any comments of your own.

Please note we are holding our Lunchtime Talks online only for now - we are looking forward to seeing you in the building again soon.
