On June 30, 'Nate News' released a formal statement to announce the removal of public comment sections from all entertainment news articles.
'Nate News' revealed, "We have taken into consideration the concerns of many of our users, who felt that public comments under entertainment news articles are inflicting more harm than good on celebrities, TV programs, etc; as a result, as of July 7, public comment services under all entertainment news articles will come to an end."
The news platform continued, "User comments posted prior to July 7 will be viewable and adjustable even after the public comment service comes to an end, through the 'My Comments' tab within each individual account. We also notify that as of July 7, the 'My Comments' tab containing all comments previously posted by an individual user will be made viewable by other users."
Furthermore, users will also be able to manage notifications related to comments and replies shared between other individuals through various 'My Comments' tabs. However, according to 'Nate News', "As societal responsibility over one's own comments online continues to become an important topic, we plan on removing the option to 'hide' or 'make private' one's comments, instead publicizing all comments to all users."
Finally, 'Nate News' relayed, "We will be seeking to establish a cleaner and fairer commenting culture in the future."
