For all its upsides and downsides, my family chooses Matzav for news because it’s the most filtered, with no open forums or say-what-you-want comments.
I just want to suggest something. Every time you post something like the death of Oscar de la Renta, some comments will come up with: “Why is this news for a Jewish site?”
I venture that there are two types of Matzav readers:
1. Log on and quickly see the insular news in the Jewish world.
2. Keep abreast of all current events, in a kosher venue, with only the “clean” news.
The number 1s are opposing this news item and many others, while the number 2s appreciate knowing this and even more in a kosher click.
Maybe you can have two tabs, one for Jewish news and one for world news.
Or maybe you can subdivide your site, and have a site Matzav.com/Jewish or something like that that will only show the key Jewish items. In so doing, you can even widen the “not particularly Jewish” content, since whoever doesn’t want it is not seeing it.
Just a thought.
