    [Comments] Case: Fans Also Love Telling The Good Brand Stories
    Any kind of post or comment doesn’t just disappear by itself. Often, we just let the bad things outshine the good things as one negative comment equals the ten positive comments we were just given. Since last Wednesday, it has received  500,000 likes and 22,000 comments. The reason why this exact case turned into such a storm of positive comments from fans is first of all down to the touching story that many people can relate to.

If you can have a business blog that people read and comment on, you have a real-time focus group. If you answer the comments quickly, a conversation happens. People who read that conversation feel attached to your business because they got interested in your story, and that story is being told in the dialog of the comment section.
