Do 3rd party commenting systems (Disqus et al) support my community, or theirs?

It used to be that Web 2.0 was the cool new thing, and a core feature was that the audience could leave comments on websites. It's common nowadays for websites to support comments, and comment areas have become (in some cases) a war zone full of partisan bickering. It was ground-breaking the 10ish or so years ago that websites began to support 3rd party comments. Really.

Implementing Facebook comment's on your website - should Disqus be afraid?


Recently Facebook developed a new social plugin that allows a website to put up a facebook-powered comment box. For someone to leave a comment, they have to have a facebook account, and currently be logged-in to facebook. Any comments made in the comment box appear within their facebook activity stream (wall) and the comment thread which occurs over on facebook will show up on the website. Sounds pretty cool, and in fact is rather similar to the Disqus service. As of this writing I use Disqus on this and a couple other websites.

Better comment support with the disqus service & drupal module.. maybe

Disqus is an interesting service that fills a very web-2.0-style role. There's a zillion sites out there which support the users leaving comments. The web 2.0 model has community involvement front and center, contrasting with the old model of businesses pushing content or services or products at you. But the problem with this is having to register with each and every website on which you want to leave comments.. and further site administrators dealing with comment spam and desiring a better solution.
