The comments are changing

Andrew Vazzano, SNY.tv

This week, we’ll be launching a new commenting system and social media tools across the SNY.TV network of sites, which includes The Knicks Blog.

In a partnership with Livefyre, our commenting system will be overhauled, while adding new tools to better track the pulse of sports social networks, including players, beat writers and official team accounts. From chat rooms to live blogs to social media streams, these new additions will better connect you to your favorite sports teams and our writers to the 24/7 news cycle.

What’s different? For now, For now, you will only be able to log into our comments using a Facebook or Twitter account. This will help the conversation stay on topic and let the best discussions rise to the top and enrich the reading experience. This will also include a consistent commenting policy that will be applied to all team sites with better, stricter moderation tools.

Bear with us while we make these changes. We’re excited to take this first step in upgrading your experience and I hope you’ll enjoy what’s to come…
