The Detroit newspapers recently switched their post-article comments to the Facebook platform.
Reluctantly, I opened a Facebook account in order to be able to comment on these sites. My comments show up (usually) on the website for ME -- I can see them -- but it's clear that nobody else is seeing the comments, as I have received no subsequent feedback (or "likes," for that matter) to my posts -- either positive or negative -- after commenting on 25+ articles.
I have absolutely no desire to use Facebook itself in any way, but would like my comments to appear on 3rd-party websites. Am I missing something basic here?
