Why does WRAL require a Facebook account to comment?


We set the bar high when it comes to online dialogue because it is our goal to create an environment for civil and productive community conversation.

We made the change to Facebook comments in response to long-term users who were dissatisfied with the level of discourse and moderation in comments on stories.

We believe the added layer of verification and moderation that Facebook provides will make our comment pool more civil and useful to you.

If you read a comment that you believe is abusive, click the down arrow next to a user's name and select either "Mark as Spam" or "Report to Facebook," depending on the circumstance.
