BackType, a service that allows users to find, follow, and share comments from across the web, released new features and received $300,000 in funding, according to reports. The seed funding came from True Ventures, and was led by the firm’s founder and partner Toni Schneider. The company is introducing a BackType Connect, a feature that shows users all the conversations surrounding a particular article or post. According to the BackType blog, BackType Connect connects the "conversational graph," including tweets from Twitter and comments from blogs, FriendFeed, Digg, Reddit, and other social media.
