How Can We Improve Your Reactions to Articles?

What do you think of Countable's Reactions?

by Countable | 12.14.18

Greetings Countable commenters, critics, and Take Actioners...

Like Congress, we at Countable work for you. Unlike Congress, we want to get better and more efficient at our job.

We’ll be querying you about a number of ways we can improve Countable over the next few days, but this afternoon, we’re focusing on Reactions.

Reactions

Countable articles open with a headline, and often include a subhead question:

Depending on the headline, or subhead, we provide potential Reactions:

Clicking on one of these will show you the percentage of Countable users who share – or disagree – with your Reaction.

It will also give you the option of commenting, and sharing that comment with your reps.

Talk to us

Countable isn’t meant to be read, it’s meant to be used. A way of getting you in touch with your lawmakers so can let them know how to vote on current bills or what legislation they should introduce.

How can we improve your interaction with articles?

  • Are there Reactions you want added or removed?
  • Would you like more information included before you react?
  • Do you read the subheading? Or do you tend to react to the main headline?
  • How do you feel about the inclusion of Reactions within the Daily Countable?

Share your thoughts by commenting below, or reach out via email.

Thanks for helping us improve your Countable experience.

—Josh Herman

    They should probably be at the end of the article and not the top. So many people only read the headlines.

    I’ve a number of opinions / comments too express, so here goes..... Generally speaking, i enjoy the ability of expressing my opinions on a wide range of topics, but particularly the Political arena. 1. At times, the wording of article titles, bias a the articles politics left of center, particularly those put forth from AXIOS. 2. We’ve seen quite derogatory commentary comments, particularly generally from the same several names which I’ll not mention, but are well known,on the site. 3. I’d be curious in seeing a market submitted asking participants to provide their political persuasion by Democratic, Independent, Republican or Other? Yes, one can generally ascertain for many what their political agendas are, But I’m just curious about the Countable site as a whole. 4. I’m in agreement with ”Jonas” on having the ability to reply to people's comments. Yes, at times, one can often make a second comment on a market to respond to an commentators comment but not always. 5. I’ve been having two issues on the site as follows: * I’m repeatedly having the site freezing 🥶 up and I have to reboot my iPad. * At times I’m unable to look at some individuals comments as the site just seems to be trying to open. If I go back, I’m able to pull up other folks comments. It just appears (🤷🏼‍♂️) as if the comment is being blocked for some reason or other. 6. Again, without giving specific names of commentators who are generally prone in, rather than giving their commentary with civility, they’ve a tendency of using often slanderous or inappropriate dialogue directed towards those of the opposite political persuasion. The site is supposed to be a venue to afford others the ability of learning new and different ideas which they may use to compromise their political views. SneakyPete..... 🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️. 12*15*18.....

    I think the reactions should be buried under the article. I get impression that too many only read the headline.

    The new reactions are nice! Can we make it so the standard is not to send our comments to legislators? I’d like to not send something dumb to Lou Barletta.

    This is a liberal breeding ground for stupidity and snowflakes. I get to see the Democrat Socialist Party in action as they pervert words, science, regulations, laws and how they want to steal my money and take away my rights.

    Countable, add a heaping scoop of intellectual honesty and integrity to your recipe and you may well be the best cook in the political kitchen. As it stands, you fail miserably due to your unwillingness to reign in a culturally ingrained extreme left bias. Baked into your organization as it were. Disclaimer: Hey you asked so I told you.

    I would like to see totals of how many yesses or no’s get sent to senators and congresspersons on these issues. When they try to claim the people don’t want net neutrality for example, it would be nice to say but what about the 92% of people in favor of it on countable?

    I didn't think of the "middle face" as Apathetic, but that's how you record it. I like the Yes, No, Maybe, but I think the emotions need some tweaks. If somebody is truly apathetic, why are they reacting at all? Maybe it's "mixed" or "neutral"?

    I would like to be able to select one of the reactions to filter out only those comments. Then be able to choose another filter to see others or ALL. Also, just like legislation should be, there only be one topic listed in one posting. Lumping together versions, often unrelated topics into one posting, demonstrates why we have such poor legislation in our Country. Every topic should be discussed individually and pass on its own merits.

    I Love Countable & tell everyone to download it. I'm happy with being able to get the messages to Our Elected Public Servants. The only thing I can think of is to get the messages straight to the trouble maker at the top, TRUMP if it is at all possible. Thank You Countable for all you do!

    Your answers are leading and limited. This site is nearly useless as far as conveying a genuine informed opinion.

    It would be nice to be able to confront a lot of the lunatic lefties on this site directly however it would just turn into a F##K You contest as that’s how the liberal left wing mind works when they are proven wrong and backed into a corner!

    Sometimes it is confusing what icon is most appropriate for the question. Is the smiley face funny or I agree and so on. Also there are times you ask more than one question and you can only give one icon answer.

    I’m satisfied with the way it is and I’m glad you can’t reply to comments as many people would then need correcting 😊

    At times, the wording of article titles bias a politics left of center; but, other than that, I feel informed by this App.

    Categories are fine with me. Would like the ability to disagree with individual responses with brief comment, which would make it more interactive.
