New Comments Box Plugin from Facebook

Comments Box social plugin on Facebook was considerably changed a short time ago. First of all it performs particular waveforms with the purpose to provide appropriate remarks. Besides the new system empowers the admins to delete indecent and unbecoming comments. Act of logging by users to plugin either through the social network or Yahoo! brings about announcement of user’s remarks on the wall.

These improvements enable Facebook’s Comments Box plugin to take part in comment systems contest and confront its present strong participants like WordPress comments, Disqus, IntenseDebate etc. Thanks to imparting of the authenticated identity of Facebook profiles to remarks websites receive the possibility to make the quality of conversations better, repress improper usage and does not demand Facebook account holder to formally record for a proprietary commenting account.

A new type of the Comments Box plugin has been testing on Facebook Blog and Developers Blog during some months before its bringing into service. It attempted a poll system before installing of resort to Likes to gauge a comment’s credibility. Web developers receive now the chance to arrange their plugin and replicate inculcated code from the Comments documentation page into their site for a simpler adoption. The plugin exist at the present time on a few sites in the net.

The Comments Box plugin does not allow you to provide feedback without mentioning of your name. That means that user won’t have the possibility to share their impressions or experience anonymous.

Social Relevance and Identity

The order of comments placement is especially worthy of respect. Remarks do not appear at random, but considering the relevance to the viewer. Friends’ comments and those of friends’ friends are at the top of the list. They are followed by the most Liked remarks. Whereas possible spam comments and those marked as offensive by other users are not placed into the stack but sent to verification.

There is a piece of info near each comment there. The size of user’s data published next to his opinion depends on chosen of him permission to view. Mutual acquaintances, work place and position, age, place of residence etc. may be shown pursuant to privacy settings of the commenter.

Moderation Tools

The Comment Moderation Tool becomes available for access of admids after their embedding on the website. Thanks to that dashboard the admins are empowered to visit the home page of the comment, to express an approval or a disapprobation regarding the comment, or to conceal the comment from public field of vision which will still be visible for the friends of the commenter. The admins are also enabled entirely to ban the user from commenting on their site.

The perfection of the Comment Moderation Tool is not the best in comparison with some Word Press commenting plugins, for example. The absence of a prompt answering link and impossibility to edit the comments does not make it more attractive on the one hand. But on the other hand exactly these shortcomings prevent the subjective amendment of the comments and remain them either identical or hidden from view.

Thanks to the moderation settings admins are permitted to increase the number of other moderators, make use of a standard keyword blacklist, develop a custom blacklist, set common grammar mistakes to be auto-corrected, and allow or refuse third-party logins. The moderation modes called “Make every post visible to everyone by default” or “Let me approve each comment before it’s shown to everyone” which content is reflected in their names are also available to be set.

Comment Syndication and Notifications Increase Traffic

A “Post to Facebook” box is automatically verified after creating of a user’s comment. This feature generates the wall post and news feed story which are of essential aid for web publishers who generate leads from the networks of their commentators.

The wish to join the discussion after revealing of the wall post or news feed story does not require reference to the website. “Comment on [website]” button comes into sight as a reminder that all the remarks will be syndicated to the website’s comments reel by default. Posts, stories, and the Comments Box plugin on the website stay synced independent from the place of their creation.

Commentators once having left a remark are invited to return to the discussion while they are offered Facebook notifications with links back to the website.

One of the Comments Box plugin advantages is its direct connection with the social network Facebook. If the user spread spam, the reports are automatically sent to Facebook and after collecting of a specified number of them the Facebook account of spammer is going to be terminated and the ties with their friends torn. These steps must prevent the users from spamming as not everyone is ready to stop virtual social communication.
