    Love the new “editor’s note” option! It works great for putting out something you want a lot of eye traffic hitting. Thanks for the quick and simple set up instructions.

    I am from Kentucky and now live in south Florida. I use “editor’s note” to advise weather conditions down here, it seems to poke my friends up north, especially during the winter.

    I like the feature, but what is my incentive to spend more time on than I have to?

    You have told us that there would be ways of monetizing our papers, but I still have not seen any follow up to those plans.

    Hi Adrian,

    We are working on a few different models and we’re eager to roll them out as quickly as possible. Thanks for bearing with us and being patient.

    Individual incentives vary by publisher — we see used in various ways:

    -as a personal tool for keeping on top of Twitter and other favorite social media
    -as a listening tool for marketers
    -as an engagement tool to grow conversations and build influence around topics

    So while there is not currently the opportunity to monitize, depending on how a publisher is using there may be reasons to invest additional time, such a building influence or providing a service to readers.
