The Sun welcomes new commenting system

As of Feb. 23, The Sun will use Viafoura as its platform for story comments.

Those used to the Facebook comments, our previous system, will likely notice some additional functionality and changes.

As a reader, you can now sign in using a variety of social media accounts instead of being limited to logging in via Facebook. And it's easier than ever to engage with fellow commenters - like or dislike comments, follow other users, receive instant notifications on commenting activity, earn badges, or take a moment to flag anything that's offensive or abusive.

Yes, there inevitably be some hiccups and growing pains as we make this exciting transition. But stick with us, as we're confident this new commenting platform will help spark more discussion and engagement within our online community. Thanks for your patience, and happy commenting!
