3 Reasons Why I Chose Disqus Over Other Commenting Systems



Just like any other bloggers, I am always on the look out for tools that could help me improve the interaction and over-all acivities in my blog.

While there may be several tools and widgets that could help enhance the interactions and activities for a blog, I decided to focus on my commenting system and just like everyone else, I was skeptic about migrating from the defatul WordPress commenting system to Disqus. Yet, I decided to migrate. I had no regrets for doing so.

While there may be several reasons as to why a blogger should implement Disqus, below are just 3 of the main reasons why I do:

1. Increased Interaction – Disqus allows its users to be notified through email when someone responded to their comments thus helping in continued conversation. It has also enabled tagging or added the @ mentions feature wherein one could easily get notified through Twitter when someone responds to their comments. These easy notification features help both parties become updated as the conversation progress thus increasing interaction in the blog.

2. Easy sharing – Once a reader Likes a post, Disqus automatically provides an option to share the said article through Facebook or Twitter which makes sharing much easier without pressing any other buttons like TweetThis or Share button.

3. Threaded conversation – Along with the @ mentions, Disqus allows commenters to keep track of the responses and not get confused as to who responds to who. With its threaded conversation ability, one can simply respond to a specific comment without causing any confusion.

There are several other reasons out there as to why Disqus may be the best commenting and even a social network/community for 2011 but at the end of the day, what matters is that your specific requirements are met by whatever commenting system or blogging tool you choose to implement.

    I have gone on and off Disqus.  And, as you can see, I am registered.  However, it is not the best at maintaining or allowing comments- nor does the notification work quite as advertised.  I view this as the old nursery rhyme concept- when it’s good- i’s very good.  But, when it’s bad, it’s horrid.

    I installed Disqus commenting system for my blog, but I need that Name/email/website option with Disqus. Most of the readers don’t want to sign in to anything, it makes them annoying.

    I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that very useful. Thank you!

    This is a modern world with almost everything becoming technology dependent. Websites have been one of the inventions of modern technology that has helped to make the world smaller than it is. Websites plays a great role in worldwide communication. It takes only a matter of seconds to gather important information from a website in any region of the world.
