The updated Commenting plugin allows users to easily participate in conversations on Examiner.com with their real identity, increasing engagement on both articles as well as the related conversation on Facebook. When friends comment on the News Feed story on Facebook, these comments can be syndicated from Facebook and published as threaded comments on Examiner.com. Similarly, any replies to a person’s comment on Examiner.com will show up in the News Feed story on Facebook.
When a person leaves a comment on an Examiner.com story, it can also be published to friends on Facebook, along with a link to the Examiner.com story where the comment originated.
Users to the Examiner.com site and other sites enabled with this feature will be able to comment with additional identity providers beyond Facebook. In addition, the Comments plugin provides a rich set of moderation tools that empower the Examiner to mitigate spam and malicious content. Readers can also help cut down on irrelevant content by marking comments as spam, or reporting them as being abusive.
In 2007, Facebook launched Facebook Platform to empower developers and entrepreneurs around the world make the Web more social for users. Millions of Facebook users return to the site each day, providing unparalleled distribution potential for applications and the opportunity to build a business that is highly relevant to people’s lives.
