[Comments] How To Engage On Sites Using Facebook’s New Commenting Plugin
Facebook recently introduced a new version of its Facebook Comment Box Plugin , allowing website owners to integrate their commenting functionality with their Facebook presence. We’ve already looked at the pros and cons of the Facebook commenting plugin for businesses considering implementing the plugin on their sites. Do they personalize responses more by using commenters’ own Facebook accounts (does that cross a work/life boundary)? Do they just avoid commenting on sites using this plugin?

With that, we have been using the blog comment capabilities of MovableType since the beginning. Don''t get me wrong, it still catches way more pieces of spammy blog comments than the ones that go live and, every day or so, I would hop on to the backend and simply delete the ones that made it through.

Too many approved comments were coming through as ham despite being spam. -- Thank you for reading Mollom and You: Mind Adding a Comment Please?
