Helping readers find the stories they want
We rolled out a set of changes to Bleacher Report this week that we are excited to tell you about.
First and foremost, we’re introducing a major new feature on Bleacher Report article pages to highlight content about your team. You’ll see it on NBA, NFL and Baseball articles right now, and it will begin rolling out to the rest of our sports coverage over the next few days. We designed it to make it easy for you to find and read more content about the sports teams and topics that you care about.
Put simply, once you finish an article, we’ll have a rundown on all the other stories (from B/R and from other sites) that you’ll want to read to stay a true blue fan of your teams. In the story below, you’ll see the Magic Channel ready to keep all the Orlando fans in the know.
In addition, we’ve made a few changes to the way readers share and comment on B/R content. We streamlined the placement of Facebook like buttons, and are also testing Facebook’s comment system on some Bleacher Report articles. In the process, we have removed the old B/R like buttons in an efforts to keep things simple.
All of these changes to our “social” features are a work in progress, so please let us know what you think.
