Ingredients of a Good Online Comment

Tom Davenport of the Babson College recently published an awesome HBR blogpost on the Six Ingredients for a Good Online Comment . I recommend that everyone read the blogpost.


My idea of an excellent blog comment is the one that becomes fodder for the next blog post that the author makes. If a blogger basis her next blog post on a comment that I posted on her blog, I feel that my comment added some value to the overall blog, and more importantly to her overall story. To me that is a successful comment, regardless of whether she criticizes my comment or embraces it.


What are your thoughts on what comprises a good blog comment?
