They looked at: fact based comments clarity of thought original article criticism name (full name, nicknames, anonymous) icon (author picture, avatar) adherence to party lines grammar Richard Heseltine, AOL, from January 2013 Emerging Media Conference (EmMeCon) AOL’s analysis showed what people cared about: style -- 7% (not very important) individual substance - 14% mildly important community involvement -- 19% somewhat important personal identity % somewhat important relationship to content - 42% very important
