Pluses And Minuses Of Facebook Comments For News Sites

So why would publishers switch to Facebook [comments]? First, it provides distribution. If a user comments on a story without unchecking the “post to Facebook” box, the comment appears on that user’s wall, underneath a link to that story. And second, using Facebook requires your real identity, which (in theory) means users should be a little more constructive in their comments. Say good-bye to anonymous trolls. However, you can post a comment as your page identity, which may introduce new spamming opportunities.
