Which Blog Commenting System Do You Use and Why?
One aspect of blogging that matters a lot is readers responding to what you have blog about. This they do buy posting comments on the blog post. Blog commenting is good for so many things. One of which is the ability to ask further question, show appreciation for what a reader has learned in the post, getting linkbacks to the readers’ blog and so many other good thing. The truth is, spammers post a lot of stupid and annoying comments using the same blog commenting system. In a little while, you will find a list of some popular blog commenting system.

Now to some of the popular blog commenting system…
Normal Blog Commenting System
These are the normal blog commenting system that comes with the installation of a blog. This can either be a WordPress blog commenting system or a Blogger blog commenting system. There are so many other blogs like posterious, tumblr, typepad etc which comes with there own blog commenting system. This blog is WordPress based and it once used the normal blog commenting system. I had to change to another blog commenting system you would see further below because fitting spam comments had become tiresome. (UPDATE: We have gone back to normal commenting system).
Facebook Comment System
With the Comments Box, Facebook users on your site can comment on your content, post those comments to their profiles, and share them with their friends on Facebook. The Comments Box allows non-Facebook users to make comments on your site as well. And via our APIs, you can access related comments made on Facebook as well to bring the conversation together.
This blog uses Facebook comment system. I use this because it helps readers who have an account with Facebook to easily drop comments. Apart from this, once a comment is made on this blog, I get a Facebook notification about the comment. So far, it has been of good use. Even though, Facebook users can use it as a SPAM medium but it can be easily moderated.
Disqus Comment System
Disqus, pronounced “discuss”, is a service and tool for web comments and discussions. Disqus makes commenting easier and more interactive, while connecting websites and commenters across a thriving discussion community. The Disqus comment system replaces your WordPress comment system with your comments hosted and powered by Disqus.
This blog used Disqus comment system. I used this to replace the normal WordPress blog commenting system simply because it helps minimize considerable the amount of SPAM comments I get. Apart from that, it has Facebook, Twitter, Sesemic and other useful sites integrated with it.
IntenseDebate Comment System
IntenseDebate is a feature-rich comment system for WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and many other blogging/CMS platforms. With IntenseDebate comment system, you improve the conversation within the comment section and reply directly to an individual comment. You can also integrate Facebook and Twitter login with it.
Now that you have seen the popular blog commenting system, which one of these blog commenting system you use and why do you use the blog commenting system?
I’ll be looking forward to read from you.
