StoryGraph users can comment on the reading activity/review of their friends

We’re thinking of adding in the ability to comment on your StoryGraph's friends’ reading updates and/or reviews (if your friends have commenting turned on!).

There’ll be settings for comments. So you’ll be able to have StoryGraph friends, but commenting disabled (which will be the default).

What do you think?

Not going to lie, I've enjoyed not having a comment feature. But having a settings for comments would be amazing if SG adds this feature.

romanceschmomance Yes, there'll be a setting and it'll be default off, even if you have friends! :-D

This would be great! I think being able to comment on updates and reviews would make things feel a lot less isolated

Yes! I just did a post on IG about The storygraph and the thing people said they wanted the most was this. Basically better community vibes. The ability to interact more with others.

I love the settings option, because I want SG to be more a tracking part and not a social media part for me. So super awesome!

I'd love to be able to comment on what my friends are reading. At the moment, I have to remember which username is which friend and then go to another platform to actually interact with them.

I'd love it if eventually this kind of activity could be filtered into the book page - kind of like the reading challenges. So you can see you and XXX discussed this book' as a bit of reminder of why I might want to read it next.

This is definitely the one thing I miss most from GR, the ability to interact with my friends. I think people would really love this.

I'd love it - I would also love to be able to compare my stats with my friends stats, would that be possible?

Yes, that's a potential feature, but that's not related to this potential update! There's this post that might be more fitting: https://roadmap.thestorygraph.com/requests-ideas/posts/see-stats-for-all-users.

I would love to be able to talk to my friends about the books they are reading, and I'd love to read their opinions on my books.

Just to say, while I'm not expecting The StoryGraph to replicate what cough other sites offer, I am personally really missing elements of interactivity - particularly being able to comment/receive comments on reviews. I may well be in a minority here but I like the community aspects of reading as well as the, uh, reading aspects of reading.

I believe it's beneficial with settings that distinguish between Friends and Followers. I think seeing what the communication styles for the Buddy Reads and Book Clubs features will help in determining how to better improve commenting on a mass scale.
