One of the greatest ways of getting people to interact with your website is to enable a commenting system on your website - this is a proven method of getting people to give feedback on your blogs, articles, tutorials, advice or whatever your Joomla website is about. There are however two things which might hold you back:
1. Anonymous commenting - if you want most interaction you'll need to enable anonymous commenting. However, this has the huge drawback of comment spam. If you don't have SPAM prevention mechanisms - such enabling CAPTCHA on Joomla 3, then you are going to be hassled and littered with comment spam. This will typically overrule the benefits of the actual comments themselves...
2. Registration - some people will simply refuse to comment if they need to go through the process of registering on your website. There are many reasons for this, which we don't really want to go into at this point in time.
The above two issues might really be holding your website comments from being an enabler for your website. But what if there was a way to fix both of these problems and get an easy way to get website comments?
If you integrate your website with Facebook, then both of the above problems go away, your users won't have to register (they only need to be logged in to their Facebook account). and since anonymous commenting need not be enabled you wont have a deluge of comment spam.
The JFBConnect component from Sourcecoast is a Joomla component which allows you to create this Facebook integration on your website in minutes. It's a really mature component, which is really simple to setup, literally it shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes to get Facebook comments on your website. The Autotune wizard embedded within the component ensures that you don't have to worry much about what things you need to setup, you will be guided on what you need to do - and where you are stuck, the documentation will help you out with clear instructions.
This is really one of those components which we can't recommend enough - it's one of those gems which you really need to make sure you've implemented on your Joomla website. Given the easy interaction and the traffic which you are likely to get from Facebook - this is a very good bargain and you should see this as a serious investment in your website.
