Following in the footsteps of commenting system platforms Echo, Disqus and Intense Debate, WordPress.com has launched WordPress, Twitter and Facebook authorization and identity systems to leave comments on their bloggin service.
Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg tells that the Twitter and Facebook comments are a lot more “flexible” than just Twitter and Facebook.
“As an important touch, we let you stay logged in to multiple services. This means you can stay logged in to Facebook for convenience, but still leave a comment through Twitter or your WordPress.com account. Just click whichever identity you’d like to use, and the selected one will be associated with your comment when it’s published. You’re in control of your identity, as you should be,” revealed WordPress.com.
“Depending on your theme, you may notice the comment area looks different than before to make room for these new features. We also intelligently choose to use a light or dark visual style for the comment box, depending on the theme you are currently using.”
“And since you know your readers well, you can now change the text above the comment box to be whatever you like. We recommend using the default we’re applying to new blogs, “What’re you thinking?”, as questions often encourage more comments, but you can change it to whatever you like by going to your dashboard, then Settings ? Discussion,” WordPress.com stated.
