Facebook commenting system debuts on Dodgers blog today

June 21, 2011 | 11:00 am

Fbook Later today, the Dodgers blog will switch to the Facebook comments system. Once we’ve made the conversion, the only way you’ll be able to comment on the Dodgers blog will be by using your Facebook account.

Jimmy Orr, the managing editor, online, has posted the reasoning for the decision on the Readers Representative journal here. In a nutshell, we’re hoping this change brings more consistency to the commenting process. It will allow your comments to be posted immediately, without the sometimes lengthy delays that we currently experience while comments are moderated.

Of course, change always brings positive and negative reactions, and we want to know what you think of this one. If you want to tell us, comment on this post, e-mail me by clicking here, or e-mail Martin Beck, the Times' reader engagement and social media editor, by clicking here.

All Things Lakers, the Times' interactive database on the Los Angeles Lakers, and Fabulous Forum, our main sports blog, are already using the system.
