Facebook Shared Comments

Description

It seems that everyone is on facebook these days, and for many of us, to stay connected and drive users to our own site, we cross-post our entries to facebook.

However, when you cross-post, the comments on facebook don’t show up on your website, and the comments on your website don’t show up on facebook – you have two seperate groups of people interacting with your post but not interacting with each other.

This plugin aims to solve that problem.

This plugin used the facebook API to automaticly cross-post your entry to facebook, and then replace the comments functionality for that entry with a facebook comments box that includes the discussion both on your wall AND on your own website.

In more plain terms, you will have one set of comments, shared between facebook and your own website.
