Adding facebook comments to your blog

You can add comments to your blog via Facebook Comments plugin.

You can connect the comment plugin with your username or make a separate ap­pli­ca­tion for it which gives you the op­por­tu­ni­ty to share the mod­er­a­tion rights with other Facebook users.

Facebook user account

If you choose to use the username method, just add your Facebook username (the one found from the address bar when accessing your profile) to settings.

Facebook ap­pli­ca­tion

  1. Login to Facebook and go to https://de­vel­op­ers.facebook.com/
