Facebook Comments Plugin For WordPress

I’ve just recently installed the Facebook Comments plugin for WordPress at ABDPBT. The plugin allows users to comment on your blog using their Facebook profile, as well as “like” or post those comments to their own profile pages. You can download it here, and there is some troubleshooting advice here. (Note: it doesn’t play nicely with any of the Simple Facebook connect plugins, so you’ll need to deactivate those if you want to use this one.)

I’ve made no secret that I’m not much of a fan of Facebook, but it is immensely popular, and plugins like these help your readers by not requiring them to enter a name and URL every time they read. I’m hoping it will be a hit here.

    I installed this on my blog a few weeks ago and actually think its increased my comments.

    This sounds like a very good idea. Thanks for the tip!

    Hmm. I’m conflicted. I’m sure it increases comments in some instances, but I’m not sure its worth the extra plugin (or maybe I’m just wary of not absolutely necessary plug-ins after a long phone call with liquid web about my databases). But the facebook like option is nice. I’m going back and forth. Let us know if you feel its helped in the long run.

    I’m going to try this. I just installed a Facebook “Like” button and was shocked at how many people actually used it, so this might be even better.
