Today, we launched group chats on Jalopnik.
Here's a quick overview the differences between the old discussion system and group chats:
The discussion following the story is curated by the author of the post. If the author engages a reader by replying to or recommending a comment, then all replies from that user will appear in the discussion highlights.
Below the discussion highlights, there's a section called "Other groups" which includes other popular discussions on the post. Click into a group to view that particular user's discussion highlights. You can view all replies to the main story, sorted by oldest first, by clicking "All replies on this post."
We're continuing to make improvements as we roll out group chats to more of Kinja. Please give us your feedback below.
