AL Facebook Comments Box
Having wrestled with installing FB comments on many systems over the past year, this one was surprisingly simple to install.

Works and looks great, right out the box, and the built in social sharing bar is an impressive add on.

The only thing missing is step-by-step documentation. (Currently, the developer simply directs you to Facebook's documentation, which to most users seems scarier than it actually is.)

In short, install the plugin, go to the link to Facebook apps and create a new app. I recommend bookmarking the link to the comments moderation page on Facebook, and this (not your site admin) is where you will need to approve or hide comments.

Nice job Alex. Bien hecho!

Great extension that works, has an intuitive interface and includes documentation. Good control offered for site admin, and output is nice on the front end.

2 things would be on my wishlist to make this perfect:
1) a star rating
2) use of schema data/ micro-formats to allow the ratings and reviews to show up in Google search results

But altogether, for a free extension this is the best for general site or company reviews/testimonials in my book.

Great plugin. Simple and straightforward. The out of the box layout is neat.
