Effects of Civility and Reasoning in User Comments on Perceived Journalistic Quality: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 1
Journalists are increasingly concerned that offensive and banal user comments on news websites might alienate readers and damage quality perceptions. To explore such presumed effects, we investigated the impact of civility and reasoning (and lack thereof) in user comments on perceptions of journalistic quality. An experiment revealed that unreasoned comments decrease an article’s perceived informational quality, but only in unknown news brands. Incivility in comments had an unconditionally negative effect on the perceived formal quality of an article. Neither civility nor reasoning improved the assessments of journalistic quality, as compared to a comment-free version. On the contrary, we observed a trend showing that the mere presence of comments deteriorates the perceived quality of an article.

To Post or not to Post?: Anonymous user comments in the Israeli journalistic sphere: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 10
User comments have become an integral part of news websites. This study implements the well-validated theory of planned behavior (TPB) in order to understand the individual decision to post anonymous comments on news sites in Israel. We examine whether commenting is a spontaneous behavior, as has been argued in previous studies, or a reasoned behavior. Based on an internet survey (N = 707), the present study results support the hypothesis that the process involved in posting a comment in a specific socio-political context involves a reasoned action that can be understood by applying a generic theoretical model. Empirical support for TPB model hypotheses for intention prediction was evident, with the subjective norm-intention relation stronger than the attitude and perceived behavioral control–intention relations. In spite of the anonymous nature of the comments, findings highlight the relevance of the perceived socio-political context for individuals’ decision whether to post an anonymous comment.

A new hope: AI for news media | TechCrunch
machine learning can be utilized to create new forms of interaction between people, journalists and the newsroom. Automatically moderated commenting is just one example already in use today. Think if it would be possible to build interactions directly on the lock screen that let the journalists better understand the way content is consumed, simultaneously capturing in real time the emotions conveyed by the story.

Little Tip: Draw Your Grid in ASCII in Your CSS Comments for Quick Reference
There are other ways to do this. You could use longhand CSS properties. You could name the areas. But say you like doing it this way because it is succinct or whatever. That's where the ASCII is useful! Leave it in a CSS comment and number the lines.

New website for Newsround
The first thing the Newsround audience will notice is the range of participatory experiences that will be available. We want Newsround to be the place where children can find out, join in and be heard, and with new comments features, quizzes and the ability to rank lists, children will be able to shape news content in a way that hasn't been possible before.   

This is the first step the audience will notice in a programme of transformation that will continue as we deliver on Newsround's part of Children's Kids 2020 strategy. Later this year we will be releasing new mobile friendly formats and developing ways of explaining the news through online games.
