METHODS, SYSTEMS, AND MEDIA FOR SHARING COMMENTS

Technical Field

    The disclosed subject matter relates to methods, systems, and media for sharing comments.

Background

    Many content hosting platforms (e.g., a blog, a social networking service, a video hosting service, etc.) allow users to participate in a conversation thread by posting comments. For example, a user can participate in a conversation thread by posting a comment in association with a media content item (e.g., a video, post, etc.), a topic, etc. that relates to the conversation thread. As another example, a user can participate in a conversation thread by replying to a comment posted in the conversation thread.

    In some cases, a user may find a subset of comments in a conversation thread more attractive than other comments in the conversation thread and may want to share the subset of comments to other users. However, conventional approaches do not provide a user with the ability to create a sub-conversation thread including a subset of comments in a conversation thread and/or to share the subset of comments. For example, a user currently may have to share a link to a conversation thread in order to share a particular comment in the conversation thread with other users.

Accordingly, new mechanisms for sharing comments are desirable.

Summary

    Methods, systems, and media for sharing comments are provided. In some embodiments, methods for sharing comments are provided, the methods comprising: presenting a plurality of comments using a first content item; receiving an instruction to share at least one of the plurality of comments; identifying a plurality of shared comments in response to receiving the instruction, wherein the plurality of shared comments include at least one of the plurality of comments; generating, using a hardware processor, a second content item for presenting the plurality of shared comments; and causing the second content item to be presented to a user in response to receiving a user request to present the second content item.
