While many newspapers across the country have listened to the mantra, “Don’t read the comments”, and have turned off that function, the Mirror has doubled down. Our newspaper continues to provide, for better or worse, service to their readers, a way for them to engage with content that allows the public’s voice to be heard.
A recent survey found that the Mirror has reached over 20,000 comments from you, the ordinary people.
The Mirror is actually a blended platform of the traditional comments section and social media (Twitter, Facebook).
That said, the Mirror home page remains our bread and butter. There is an editor, but it is really your site. Your reflections on this community are what makes this thing work. We thank you.
