I've been discussing an idea for Quibb with Sandi, but am curious to hear feedback about it. Basically, the idea is to require a comment/note when sharing a link, whereas right now it's optional.
Personally, when I started out sharing links to Quibb, I would often add a short note. Over time, I've gotten lazy and will often just share the title. That's OK sometimes, but I think it often doesn't take that much effort to write a short sentence about how I feel about it, and it adds a lot to the dialog. Similarly, I think it invites commenting since it makes the curation more meaningful, and not just a link dump.
I think it would reduce the total # of links shared, but they would be "better" links in that it would require a higher bar for sharing. Plus my theory is that it would invite more community discussion.
That said, I could see a lot of people hating on it for adding a bit of friction. Any thoughts?
