Looking for a comment system for good WordPress?

There are many commenting platforms or comment systems for WordPress scattered out there, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Choosing a comment platform for your WordPress blog is a bit difficult. Most certainly agree that comment fields are useful for improving user engagement on the blog, which can make the user feel at home for longer and even back again to check how his comments got a response.

I try to share tips on choosing comment platform for good blog while describing each kind of comment platform that is widely used today.

  1. Default WordPress comment

If you are of a blog owner who wants to be conservative, want simplicity and not too concerned with social media publications. WordPress default commenting system is quite used, often with premium templates, comment view is also made to be interesting. The disadvantages are vulnerable to spam, but many anti-spam plugins can be used.

  1. Facebook comment

Installation of comments from Facebook system is easy and many kinds. What are the advantages? User comments will be posted also on the Facebook wall, indirectly help to share your articles on Facebook. It’s anti-spam unless the Facebook user is a fake. And what are the disadvantages? There are plugins whose comments cannot be moderated.

My recommendation plugin: Facebook comment by Fat Panda. You may need to create a Facebook app first, but incoming comments can be moderated. The existing Facebook comment also goes into WordPress comments, so if at any time you want to switch platforms. Comments can be imported into the new platform.

  1. DISQUS

This is the comment system I used. Firstly, we required to login (via Facebook, twitter, DISQUS account itself, google plus, or just guest) and then we can send a comment. The advantage is the solidity of its comment management system. Good comment detail, integrated with WordPress comments (can import-export). We can even earn money from him.

  1. Intense Debate

The comment system is quite capable as well, the advantages are Intense Debate is made by people who also make WordPress and AKISMET. So, it can be guessed if the existing features are also quite solid and qualified.

  1. LIVEFYRE

For this one system, it seems more focused on its social sharing feature. If we log in using a twitter account, we just mention our friends on twitter and our comments automatically also serve as a tweet that mentions our friends. Give more traffic opportunities.

However, the real-time feature of the comments can also mean the advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are the comments can look like a chat. The disadvantages are it’s difficult to moderate, especially if spammers are in action.
