Is there any evidence how 'share' and 'comment' perform on articles previews on a listing? Most of it also depends on the UI, but in general is there any proof these functionalities are used on that views? Is a title usually enough to trigger a user's will of sharing/commenting? Thanks

  • By articles do you mean media articles (e.g. newspaper, website, etc) or something more general (a particular item or object)? – straya Feb 12 at 6:25

Sharing these with you, purely based on the headlines (I didn't read the full articles). Very meta.

In terms of commenting, I guess you mean general commenting such as between friends or on social networks. Because it is very rare in this day and age to find a media outlet that allows public opinion to be shared on its platform, they have to tightly control the narrative they are pushing after all.
