Added Facebook's Comments Box widget
Over the years, I have used a couple of different commenting systems: Blogger's built-in comments and's version. Today, though, I decided to switch to Facebook's new Comments Box widget to see how it works. It allows you to use your Facebook credentials to login and post a comment. Then, in addition to the comment showing up here on, an item gets posted back in your Facebook News Feed pointing to this post. Very cool.

Step-by-step instructions for adding the widget are on Facebook's Developer site. It literally took me 5 minutes to get it up and running.

Reminds me of a Dharma Initiative training video

Try it out and let me know what you think.
