Facebook Connect Glitch with Disqus

Categories: bloggingcloud computingsocial networkingweb apps

disqus - facebook connect - not logged in

[Update: As of April 18, 2009, the Facebook Connect glitch under Disqus discussed in this post appears to be remedied. As you can see, I have re-activated the Facebook Connect option on The Daleisphere.

I also note that commenters using Facebook connect have the option (when leaving a comment) to allow that comment to be posted back to their Facebook feed.

Finally, I have updated my ‘Why and How to Integrate Facebook Connect with Disqus’ post to reflect recent Disqus/Facebook implementation changes.]


Disqus is in the process of enhancing their Facebook Connect feature. However, for the last day or so, with the feature enabled, only logged-in Disqus users were able to leave comments on The Daleisphere and on my iMedia Law blog. Neither Facebook users, nor regular commenters could leave comments here.

I recently updated sections 4.6 and 4.8 of my ‘Why and How to Integrate Facebook Connect with Disqus’ post describing the changes that Disqus recently instructed me to make on the applicable Facebook developer pages to facilitate the latest enhancements.  Clearly, they are not working.

For more information on the problem, I wrote a detailed description of Facebook Connect / Disqus problem here in the Disqus forums.

So, as of March 18, 2009, I have shut off Disqus’ Facebook Connect functionality on my Daleisphere and iMedia Law blogs. 

I will update this post when this problem is resolved.

    Remember that your website can be promoted using social tools like hi5 or twitter. I happen to have a website with cheap designer clothing and I could use the benefits of getting in touch with my potential clients of course using Hi5, Twitter, Facebook etc. I guess traditional Marketing didn't foresaw the immense benefits of web 2.0 hehe

    It is amazing now how all the social networking mediums are interconnected now. I can't wait to see what happens just one year from now.

    Disqus claims that it makes your comments more interactive for readers and easier to manage for you — all while connecting your community with other blogs. Well, lets see how it works.

    Disqus is a great value add to any blog, I have recently started using it and really enjoying the ease of comment management now, one of my friends also referred “intense debate”, but somehow I like Disqus better

  • http://mobileworldcat.org/ Maliyah Matthews

    I do also think DISQUS is more popular than ID. both services are nice. but i like DISQUS most as it shows comments more quickly..

    Disqus now brings us the ability to comment using your Twitter account. You don’t have to give up your actual Twitter credentials since Disqus takes advantage of Twitter’s support.

    I like commenting using DISQUS. But I am really confused about the. Like, what would would happen to the comments, when Disqus won't be providing the service anymore?

  • http://www.carsinstyle.com/ Margarita Shelton

    Disqus had been really famous for many bloggers, for with disqus they can easily monitor their comment..

  • http://www.daleisphere.com Dale Dietrich

    Comments are stored both locally and on Disqus. If Disqus goes away, you simply disable the plugin and all existing comments revert back to the native WordPress commenting system.



  • http://www.daleisphere.com Dale Dietrich

    It's six to one, half a dozen to another. I find most people DO NOT read prior comments before commenting and don't want to have to scroll down through a ton of comments before commenting. And I don't want to stop them. Plus, I'm trying to generate conversations. For those reading through existing comments they can 'Reply'ied to prior comments without the need to scroll up or down to the original comment box.
