(Update: Look at the end of the review for a Greasemonkey script for coComment)
(Update: View the follow-up post for a new Greasemonkey script.)

Tracking comments that you make at a blog has always been a hassle. The way I usually do it is by making a comment and then bookmark the article with a tag of “comment.” It has worked for me, but obviously does not provide much information and does not notify me of replies. But now there is a new service that has been causing quite a stir in the blogosphere called, coComment. Robert Scoble seems love it and TechCrunch likes the core idea of it. coComment is a free service, currently in private beta, that lets you track comments that you or others leave on blogs that you have commented on.

The way it works is very simple. When you signup to coComment, you are given a bookmarklet that you are asked to add to your browser. Then, the next time you come across a blog post that you want to comment on, click on the bookmarklet before commenting. You will then see coComment logo and your username come up next to the submit button of the comment form to show that it has been enabled (clicking on it will show information about coComment). Click on submit and you will see a message saying that coComment has processed the comment and added it to your conversation page. That’s all to it. The only hassle now is remembering to click on the bookmarklet before making a comment! But if you do, don’t panic, there is a way to track it! According to the Help section of coComment, you can simply highlight the text of your comment and click the bookmarklet. It will then automatically try to pick it up and track it.

Once you have used coComment to track comments on a blog, you will then be able to track it in the “Your Conversations” section. The conversations section will show a list of every post that you have used coComment on. If a new comment has been made by either you or a different coComment user, the title will show up bold. You then click on a title and you will see a list of all of the comments that have made along with the name of the commenter, the comment, and the date the comment was made. It functions much like Gmail’s email conversation method of displaying replies to emails. The only downfall is that you can only track comments left by other coComment users, but that is understandable because it can’t possible track everyone’s blog, unless blogs can setup some kind of comment ping system sending a message to coComment when a comment has been made. But then again, the plus side to it is you won’t receive comment spam in coComment because it is only from coComment users.

coComment also has some other features that are very interesting as well as some features that are still in the making. One feature that I like is sharing. When you are logged into coComment, you will find a section called, “Share.” You will then see a panel on the right side asking for some appearance information and when submitted, it will generate a script that you can include on your site that shows your latest comments and comments from others on sites you left comments on. You can customize it with CSS, show only your comments or others comments, and even limit the amount of posts shown. Stick it in your blogs sidebar to let others see your commenting activity. Something else that I liked at coComment was how you can view other active commenters and latest blogs that have been commented on in a nice presentable format as tag clouds.

Finally there is an easy way to keep up with blogs that I leave comments on. I agree with Scoble that this service should be very popular with bloggers once it has been released. It isn’t even out of private beta yet and is already causing a lot of discussion. Great job to the coComment team.

View coComment – Clear Conversation in the Blogosphere.

Update: It just occurred to me that one could easily create a Greasemonkey script for Firefox that will enable coComment if a comment form has been detected. So, I decided to make one quickly! It is very simple.

I’ve got it working for WordPress, TypePad, Blogger, MSN Spaces, and Xanga. Let me know if you run into any problems and I’ll try to fix it. But, as I browse to various blogs, it seems to be working.

Here is the Greasemonkey script: Automatic coComment.

Update: Updated above comment as I have added support for more blogging platforms to work with the Greasemonkey script. Enjoy!

Update: To answer some questions in the comments below. No, you do not need to update the bookmarklet or the Greasemonkey User-Script if coComment has been updated. Both scripts call a specific coComment file that performs the core functionality.

But, if coComment adds more support for blog platforms, make sure to check back here for updates on the GreaseMonkey script because the script has to check for supported platforms in order to be enabled. If anyone wants to help out as well, just let me know. I hear they are working on Flickr support now which I will try shortly.

Also, some of you have been commenting and not seeing your comments appear below. This is because of the comment spam blocker, Akismet, has been blocking some of your comments. Just give me some time to mark them as not being spam. Thanks for your patience!

It is currently in beta and they are still working out some quirks. But, I have heard that sometimes coComment can’t pickup the title/comment when commenting because the way the blog is designed. Hopefully they can fix this issue, but I’d say just give coComment some time.

    Thanks for the comment!

While I havn’t yet used this extension, I can’t for now figure out how this is better than the Greasemonkey script (available at solutionwatch.com).

I believe it’s a useful tool to advance the internet comment quality, especially for the comment poster who share their comment on their own blog. A little comment on it, a more widely blog URL supportted ability would make it a better one. Comments even on blogger sometimes may not support while the blogger set the comment to be post on a new openning window. How about make a incompetable blog site submit page on coComment? And as I know, the system only collect the comments from coComment members up to NOW. That means more widely serve capability is urgen for their beta server. Well, after all, it’s absulote an amazing web2.0 service and pray for its being more and more successful.

    [...] De vuelta de las vacaciones. Mientras no estaba, aparecieron un par de iniciativas interesantes para lograr tener un buen seguimiento de los comentarios que dejamos en otros blogs. Uno muy interesante es Cocomments, un sitio que te permite almacenar de manera gratuita todo lo que dejás en blogs de terceros. Para ello, tenés que sacar una cuenta -están en beta privada pero te mandan rápidamente la invitación- y sumar un bookmarklet a la barra de enlaces de tu navegador. Luego, escribís el comentario en el blog que quieras, pero antes de enviarla hay que hacer clic en el bookmarklet. Al lado del “Send” aparecerá un cuadro azul que dice “CO”. Al enviarlo, el comentario se agregará automáticamente a tu página en Cocomments. Además, el sitio pone a tu disposición un badge para colocarlo en la barra lateral de tu blog. Como alternativa, se puede usar un script en Greasemonkey en vez del bookmarklet. Interesante, ya que es una manera muy sencilla de seguir esos aportes que dajamos en otros blogs. [...]

    [...] The beauty of Mailroom is the organization (with user assigning) and the sending of email because it makes it so simple for you. You only get mail that requires your attentions and the fact that it learns what you need write when making a reply by the suggestions it provides so you can view and send in a matter of seconds. Sure, you will probably have to edit a few sentences, add some specifics, names, etc., but it certainly saves you from writing out a whole email. This is perfect for small businesses, or anyone really that is highly involved with email. I know I definitely could have used it the other day with 140 comments mailed to me the other day for my coComment review! [...]

  188. DonDodge - How to launch! « mobile spiele says:

    [...] In the old days you needed a big marketing staff, a huge budget, a PR agency, an elaborate press event at a big hotel (with food and drinks), and the attention of the trade press writers to launch your product. And then you would pray that all that investment of time and money resulted in a few good stories published about you. Just to make sure your message got through you would buy print ads in all the major publications. This was a VERY expensive proposition.Today you need none of that. It doesn’t cost anything to publicize your new product or service. Simply engage a couple of the “A-List” bloggers (Michael Arrington, Robert Scoble, Dave Winer, Om Malik, Steve Gillmor, Cory Doctorow, Richard MacManus,  Stowe Boyd, and others) by sending them a link to your new product or service. Tell them what problem it solves and why it is cool. When they blog, people listen. When their stories hit Tech Memeorandum, Digg, TailRank, and other services the story explodes across thousands of blogs within hours.All the trade press writers have personal blogs. Om Malik, Steve Gillmor, Cory Doctorow, and Richard MacManus are just a few examples. Once the blog world spreads a story about your product the trade press will pick it up too, which in turn feeds another round of stories, comments, and reactions.CoComment is the most recent example of this new product launch phenomenon. It all started with Robert Scoble getting a sneak peak at the new service (still in invitation only beta) while skiing in Europe. Robert blogged about it, others picked up on it, Tech Memeorandum aggregated all the discussion, and it blasted off in about 24 hours on a Saturday. Big money and influential VCs are no longer a requirement to launch a company or product. The price of software, hardware, and bandwidth has been reduced by a factor of ten, or more, since the late 90’s. Open source software, free web services, and super cheap hardware have made it possible to start a business for pocket change. Many entrepreneurs are self funding all the way to cash flow, or even break even.The web, and more specifically blogs, have made it simple and cheap to promote your product. And it can all happen in 24 hours…without ever leaving your computer screen. This is transformational. It has been happening gradually over the last 5 years so we haven’t really noticed how dramatic the change has been. It is huge. Today it is much easier to get a company started. But, with so many companies and products launching does it make it harder to get noticed? Not if you take advantage of the new approaches to exposing your beta product on the web, and engage the blog community for early feedback and promotion. It only takes one or two A-List bloggers to get you noticed. Then it is up to the product to speak for itself. Products must be intuitively obvious in their design, usability, and value. A new user should be able to understand the value of the product/service, and be able to start using it, within minutes. No training required. No complicated integration with other products. No changes in user behavior. Just solve a user problem, add value immediately, and up sell other services later.We now live in a meritocracy. Money, VCs, and the press no longer decide what will be successful. Great products/services with intuitive designs that solve a real problem win. Of course once the product catches on and other entrepreneurs take notice, then you need to scale up fast to cement your first mover advantage. That might be where VCs and money add their value in this new world. Posted by DonDodge on February 05, 2006 [...]

    [...] Comment Tracking with coComment Tracking comments that you make at a blog has always been a hassle. The way I usually do it is by making a comment and then bookmark the article with a tag of “comment.” It has worked for me, but obviously does not provide much information and does not notify me of replies. But now there is a new service that has been causing quite a stir in the blogosphere called, coComment.
