New commenting procedure

ALBANY, Ga. -- Albanyherald.com has transitioned to using Facebook accounts for commenting.

When a new article is posted online, a reader who wants to make a comment on the article will need to utilize a Facebook account to successfully post the comment. If you don't have a Facebook account, a prompt will open to help you establish one.

Articles posted before the transition this afternoon will continue to display comments posted under The Albany Herald's previous system.
