The main function of this tool is to share readers’ comments to their social networking accounts.

To boost the traffic
When the visitor decides to leave comments on your blog using Facebook comments box, then there will be a selection of those comments to appear on their profile or not. If they choose to display the comments on their profile so other visitors can also click ‘like’ below the comments of other visitors. By this way then your content will be circulating on Facebook which is the largest social networking with the number of active users is on the rise.
Article of the blogs that are shared to social networking will also attract more visitors coming from social media. Keyword competition in a search engine is very tight and if you have difficulty to raise traffic through search engines, so you can maximize the various social networks. Make it easier for your readers to share the content of your website. If you use a title that is interesting or write a unique article, likely other social networking account owners will visit your blog.
A large selection of platform for commenting
Your visitors do not need a login to blogger or create open ID. They could give comment using multiple accounts such as Facebook ID, AOL, Hotmail, or Yahoo. Almost every online user in the world uses at least one of these services. So your visitors are provided with several options to post their comments. Not all visitors’ blog has blogger account so the use of Facebook comments box is the right choice. A variety of platform sharing is going to make the article and your blog’s popularity increase. The more that know about your blog, it will be better to donate your daily traffic.
Receive notifications of new comments on a Facebook
Every time a comment was left on one of your posts, you will be notified via the Facebook notification system. The notification is also appeared when comments or like from other visitors are responded by readers. They will also get notifications of replies made to their comments on your blog. This will enhance the interactions between visitors and blog owners. If there is a comment on your blog, you can quickly respond because there is a notification so that you do not have to keep track of blogs that you manage directly. The intense interaction will make the visitors comfortable on your site.
Comment with profile
You are now also able to calmly turn off the option ‘unanimous comment’ on Blogger > Settings > Comments. The user can use their ID to leave a comment, so you do not have to worry about people who commented. The existence of unanimous comment will complicate the blog owner to identify anyone who liked his article. In contrast with the known commentators, blog administrator will recognize the people who are interested in their blog. This could be a consideration to make articles that are still concerned or likely to be read by visitors who have the same interest.
There is no spam comment
You will not get more comment spam which is not relevant with your article. If a user use anonymous identity the number of spam will increase and robots also must be able to do that. The absence of identity will invite more spammers because they are free to comment without having to damage the reputation of themselves.
Spam comment, for example, usually includes promotional or referral link without giving suggestions or criticism to the article content. This commentator just wanted to get more backlinks by commenting on your blog. With the Facebook comments box, visitors will think twice to give inappropriate comments because this comment will also be read by friends who are linked to a social networking account. Blog with spam comments will also make other visitor reluctant to give comment.
It easier to delete comments you do not like
To delete a comment on the blog, you must click the trash can icon and you will be taken to a separate window where you select the option to delete the comments permanently. But with Facebook comments box, you can delete a comment as usual you delete comments on Your Facebook profile with just one click. Some of the comments that contain pornography or gambling if not removed will affect your blog because Google’s algorithm will get rid of the blog filled with spam comment that violates the rules.
All links are nofollow by Default
The remaining links in the comment box are by default marked as nofollow and search engine robots cannot browse the contents of Facebook comments. By this way the quality of your content in search engines will increase because the robot will browse your posts only and not on the comments that are annoying.
