Here at MHMSM.com, we use Disqus [discuss] to handle the comments on all of your blogs and it has been working out very well. Visitors to our blogs can login in once and be set to comment on any blog using the Disqus comment system.
I’ve always wanted a tighter association between my blog posts and my Facebook page. Now I have that chance because of a new WordPress plugin.
The Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin enables visitors who are logged in to Facebook to post comments to your WordPress content as they normally would. The comment then shows up on their Facebook page with a link back to your post. It also shows on their friends pages. Think what that might mean to your traffic!
Here is a recent blog post on BobStovall.com that shows the Facebook comments box on top of the Disqus comments box – yes, you can have both. Placement and other options can be set in the plugins admin screen.
Whether you use Disqus or not, the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin is a “must have” if you use Facebook and WordPress in your marketing strategy. And every local business should be using the combination of WordPress, Facebook, and Twitter if you are serious about using social media to bring you business.
If you are an Orange Cat customer, installation and configuration of the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin is just an email away. If you are not yet an Orange Cat customer, head over to OrangeCat.com – WordPress and Joomla! for Local Business and see what we can do for you. (HINT- We can install any plugin on your WordPress or Joomla! powered website.)
But most importantly, have the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin installed on your website today and start taking advantage of this obvious tie-in.
