Although, Facebook hadn't announced the changes, but the fact is the social network giant had significantly updated their Comments social plugin. So what's new? Comment counts, feedback, threading, voting, and a few other things. It looks as if Facebook is gearing up to enter the commenting space in a serious way.
And, today they've confirmed they're testing out some significant updates on their own blogs, and promises that they'll have more to share shortly.
Here's Facebook's full statement:
"We're currently testing a new comments plugin on the Facebook Blog and Facebook Developer Blog that incorporates feedback from users and developers and features around authenticity, social relevance, ranking, and distribution. We'll have more to share in the coming weeks."
