In the past when you made a comment on a photo or story in your tree, it would only be viewable in your tree. In the next day or two, we’ll be releasing an update to the media page that includes a few visual style changes and a major upgrade to comments. After the change, when you make a comment on a public photo or story, those comments will be seen by everyone who has saved that photo or story. The goal is to encourage members to contribute common knowledge in a shared forum to others that care. Don’t worry, all your previous comments will still be viewable in the new system. We are also showcasing the original contributor of the photo or story so everyone sees and appreciates their work. I've attached a preview of what the new page will look like.
