Social Web, Social Comments

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.

I used this to: for my photo-website. It is the best social-plugin, that I ever tried. So easy just working. I'm very thankful to Mr. Lopez. He did a fantastic job.

Great plugin m8. thanks for free sharing.

I think there is no support for K2 articles, if this support is added this plug-in will be a must for any site..

Great product

Out of the box

Posted on 14 February 2013
Great plug-in. Worked out of the box. I especially appreciate the possibility to use the facebookcss for black background.
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!

Moderating comments

Posted on 15 October 2012
Can you please tell me how can i moderate and delete comments? I try with app id and facebook ID but i dont know how to make it work.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your rating, but I wish you have contacted me before posting questions here as this is not the pace to do it.
Please read the "moderation" section on this page

simple and good

Posted on 13 October 2012
hello, simple and good plugin. i just wonder how to remove the "facebook social plugin" link and how to set this to dutch. Facebook app id? what is this for?

For the rest, great work!
Owner's reply: Hello, I wish you have contacted me before posting questions here, but answering your questions, you can hide the link using the advanced settings in the plugin, dutch language still not available and the Facebook app ID is used if you want to moderate comments.
