DFM chat on improving online conversations

Digital First Media friends and other journalists, members of the community and fans of journalism are invited to take part in a Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time, to talk about all things journalism.

Today we are going to try (again!) to find novel but sustainable ways to improve online conversations. How much time and resources should be devoted to this effort? How can news orgs efficiently harness the conversations happening around them, in social media, forums (reddit?), etc? Can the tone be improved? How can the audience be involved in this effort? What about the best commenting platform as things are more and more mobile-centric?

If you want to be in the post chat archive, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
