Plugin Facebook comments Box for Joomla 1.5, 2.5and 3
Increase visits on your site by using this plugin with which users can comment on the articles of your page and share with your friends on Facebook
AL Facebook Social Comments Box for Joomla easily enables Facebook users to comment on your site's content. The user can share the comment on Facebook on their Wall and in their friends' streams.
Social Relevance: Comments Box uses social signals to surface the highest quality comments for each user. Comments are ordered to show users the most relevant comments from friends, friends of friends, and the most liked or active discussion threads, while comments marked as spam are hidden from view.
Distribution: Comments are easily shared with friends or with people who like your Page on Facebook. If a user leaves the “Post to Facebook” box checked when she posts a comment, a story appears on her friends’ News Feed indicating that she’s made a comment on your website, which will also link back to your site.
Friends and people who like the Page can then respond to the discussion by liking or replying to the comment directly in the News Feed on Facebook or in the Comments Box on your site. Threads stay synced across Facebook and on the Comments Box on your site regardless of where the comment was made.
