Glenn Hall, the editor in chief of Marketwatch.com, writes about the financial news site’s “Earnings Wall.”

Hall writes, “This is one of our newest interactive features and it’s designed to let you drive the discussion about the top earnings in a real-time conversation with other MarketWatch users and our reporters and editors.

“The concept is that MarketWatch editors pick the top earnings each day and put them into columns on the Earnings Wall. We then post previews and expectations ahead of the earnings releases, followed by key details from the earnings release and conference calls – all in real time.

“Our users can post their reactions alongside the news on the Wall, ask questions and share insights. Often, users will answer each other’s questions and discuss the earnings. The MarketWatch team will engage alongside you to offer additional information and insight from our reporters, editors and columnists.

“We quietly launched the Earnings Wall in October and it instantly became one of the most popular sections on our site during the last round of earnings.”
