Quoted in Google News? No Comments

The latest news from Google News: People quoted in Google News articles can no longer leave comments.

The New York TimesMedia Decoder Blog reported that Google eliminated what had been an experimental feature, as it did not get much use despite receiving substantial news coverage.

“We’re always experimenting with ways to make Google News more useful,” Google said in a statement. “Occasionally, this means we have to re-evaluate our efforts to be sure we focus on features that make the most sense for our users.”
