This afternoon we pushed changes to the Trib site that better and more aggressively incorporate aspects of Facebook into our, and your, everyday lives. Starting right this minute, you can now see which of your FB friends "like" the Trib or have read a particular Trib story, but the thing we're most excited about is that we're migrating comments from FB posts of story links to the comments section of the story in question on the Trib itself. Already it's made for a more dynamic and vibrant community experience, etc., etc. — and without ever having to gaze upon the words "Farmville" or "Mafia Wars" again.
Texas Tribune donors or members may be quoted or mentioned in our stories, or may be the subject of them. For a complete list of contributors, click here.
