One of the best ways to engage your readers is to offer a comments section that is robust. Although WordPress comes with a decent system out of the box, there are some fantastic comment plugins that go far above and beyond.
This plugin adds a sidebar widget that makes it easy to display your most recent comments on your website. This includes the text they display, the user who posted it, and what post they were commenting on.
The Facebook comments plugin lets your website viewers comment using their Facebook account. This Facebook comments feature is more attractive and engaging than the traditional WordPress comments. This article will guide you to install Facebook comments for any WordPress website without using any plugin.
I have not always been as positive about the Facebook Comments plugin. The Comments plugin can be added to any web page or blog and provide a method for logged in Facebook users to add comments to a page much like any blog commenting system.
On the other hand, and this is why we put up with Facebook in the first place, there are some benefits to be found in using the Facebook Comments plugin. Most of the comments made are immediately posted to the Facebook timeline of the person making the comment creating a potentially viral and engaging thread for millions to see.
In my experience, these side projects are a great place to take advantage of the benefits of the Facebook Comments plugin as the value of spreading the comments throughout the network probably outweigh the long term benefit of owning the comments. In fact, some of these side projects, say for an event, may be temporary in nature.
The settings can be customized in great detail to adjust typography, content, colors and much more. The plugin is great for displaying text feed, but to display photos, videos and the number of likes, shares and comments for each post, you will have to upgrade to the premium version.
When it comes to comments on WordPress, the built in WordPress commenting system , Disqus comments and Facebook comments are few of most popular. Third party comments like Facebook comments can be added using plugins, but some of us might also prefer adding Facebook comments without plugins but by code directly on our self hosted WordPress sites.
Disqus on the other hand is also a great commenting platform, but recently they have moved to an ad based plugin. The free version of disqus plugins runs ads on your sites beneath comments, although you will also get paid for these ads. But some of us might not prefer running ads (in some cases unrelated) to our content.
You can always use the official Facebook plugin for WordPress to integrate Facebook comments into your WordPress blog. But be aware that this plugin has not been actively maintained or updated for over 2 years now. In-fact Facebook has declared that it no longer actively supports this plugin by adding the plugin to its deprecated plugins page. Instead, consider this Facebook comments plugin by Alex Moss. Or, if you want to add comments without a plugin, continue reading this article.

The Jetpack comments module is part of the Jetpack plugin by Automattic. It can enhance the usability of the native WordPress comment form. The most significant benefit is that it allows users to use their WordPress.com or social media accounts to comment.
