I also wanted to highlight that has implemented the Facebook comments plug-in. Their previous comment system was pretty clunky and not always browser friendly. With the Facebook system my Facebook profile is shown as the comment source and I receive notifications of new comments in Facebook. I like the fact that identities of comment writers are more obvious. I am not a big fan of comments from handles like EMT9756 or BloodStainedMedic. I think we should all own our words with our own identity. This system also keeps writers from hiding behind “anonymous.”

On the flip side this will probably increase my Facebook friend requests and make it more important than ever for me to assign Facebook “friends” to lists.

What do you think of the Facebook comment system?
