Catch up on what happened at this weekend’s Beyond Comments conference in Boston

At this weekend’s Beyond Comments conference hosted by The Coral Project in Boston, more than 100 journalists gathered to talk about how to create better online communities. Adrienne Debigare rounds up the best tweets and ideas from the event for those who couldn’t attend. Some notable ideas: Commenters are a news organization’s most engaged readers, discussion around comments needs to think bigger than simply harassment and “trolls,” and better metrics are needed to measure the value of comments to news organizations.
