ESPN Finally Embracing the Conversation

They’re a little late to the game, but ESPN is finally getting in to the conversation game on espn.com.

ESPN Conversation

The good:

  • They offer a tag cloud and the topics flash when that topic has been commented on.
  • “ignore user” and “report violation buttons are offered
  • ESPN is also offering a blog platform

The bad:

  • They allow up to 1500 characters.  I’d like to see them go with the “less is better” approach and limit it to 140 so that there could some Twitter-like mash-ups/widgets and text messaging updates available.
  • It looks like you have to manually refresh to see new comments.
