Okay, this is a rant. This annoys me and I just have to get it out. Why Do people keep commenting on FaceBook rather than on the site they were reading?

Here’s the scenario: You see a link on FaceBook. You click the link and go to the blog/site. You read the article. You go back to FaceBook to leave a comment on it.

WTF?

The vast majority of all sites these days have a comment area right at the bottom of the content. Sites want people to interact right there on the piece. So why for the love of cripes do people leave the page and go back to FaceBook to make a comment? The comment form is RIGHT THERE!

Most sites allow anonymous commenting, so they can’t use the excuse that they don’t want to get an account. Sometimes that’s it, but not often. It can’t be because it’s too hard to find, it’s right there at the bottom of the post. It’s not that it takes too long, it takes longer to go back to FaceBook and post there. So why do they do it?

You’d think by now that people would realize that a person wants interaction on their blog post or article. They want people engaged with the content. When you post on FaceBook, it’s totally separate from the content and it pulls activity away from the piece. You should interact on the piece itself whenever possible.

What gets me too is that I’ve brought this up before and I know people read it, but they keep posting on FaceBook anyway. That’s what really annoys me. It’s not like they’re unaware anymore.

I don’t really have a question to add to this one. I just want people to quit going back to FaceBook to make comments. Stay on the page you’re reading and comment there.

    Honestly, people post on Facebook because they want everyone to see it. I think it’s really dumb, too, but I think that’s why they do it. Myself, I typically avoid Facebook because that site does so little for me. It’s more about game requests than anything now.

      I suppose the need for attention could be part of it, then again some people… Well, I’ll be nice.
      As for FB, I’m much happier when I stay away and only check once in a while. I don’t get game requests, but the feed is always full of stupidity and negativity. It doesn’t enrich my life, so why bother?

    Maybe this disqus thing will spread more. It can share to FB.
