Likes and comments of shared blog articles
Shared Blogposts: likes and comments of shared blogs have to be the same as of the original blogpost (=centralised) and not separated.
This is included in the next minor release 9.0.11 coming up on Saturday, 19th May
Great news you're starting this. Really eager to see this improvement fast as since moving to v4 we've seen a huge drop in engagement. When will we see this go live? Q3 this year?
This behaviour doesn´t fit to the idea of consolidating multiple shares in your newsfeed. With this we definitely need the likes and comments to be consolidated as well, as we can´t keep up with all of these.
Moreover users struggle with the behaviour as likes and comments on wall posts and their share behave differently. If you share a wall post the likes and comments of the share are consolidated with the likes and comments from the original post. Our users are also complaining on the usability of this behaviour, as something similar behaves differently.
This is huge for us, we've been talking to colleagues and found that they are scrolling past blogs because they don't look like people are engaging with the content. Hundreds of colleagues may have liked or commented on the blog article after reading the content, but the newsfeed just shows the likes or comments to the wall post so a great article with insightful conversation in the comments is being overlooked. On the other hand, owners of blog articles are getting frustrated that they have to look at the comments in the blog article and on the wall posts and they're finding there's two conversations to keep up with. Please update this so the wall post shows the number of likes and comments from within the blog.
Thanks Sven, looking forward to it!
especially when the option "share blogpost" automatically on timeline is enabled.
