Paper asks readers to comment on Facebook

MediaNews Group's Vacaville daily, The Reporter, is now asking readers to make comments on the paper's Facebook page instead of below a story on the paper's website. "The new reader commenting procedure will, we hope, allow for more thoughtful commentary from our readers and continue to expand community dialog on local issues of importance," Editor Robin Miller said in a note to readers. Miller said other MediaNews papers are using the same procedure for comments. Old fashioned "letters to the editor" are still welcomed, Miller said.

This tells you how short MNG's online efforts have fallen, that they're directing commenters to another website than their own.
