Facebook connect

You now have the ability to post your comment at adammclane.com onto your Facebook profile. It’s completely optional, and as you can see in the image above, if you do link your comments to your Facebook profile you’ll have the chance to control how you’d like that to look.

Over the past year or so I’ve noticed that a big chunk of the discussion for each post has happened on Facebook. That’s fantastic, but makes it hard for me to keep track of. This is an attempt to try to bridge the blog and Facebook comments together so more people can join the conversation easier.

Ready to give it a try?

To test it out, simply leave a comment on this post. When you are done click on the Facebook Connect button.

Setting up Facebook connect on adammclane.com

Facebook will ask you to verify that you’d like to connect, agree to that and you’re done!

From now on when you come to the blog, if you are logged into Facebook, you’ll see your Facebook badge in the upper right hand corner of my blog. When you see that, you’re already logged in and ready to leave a comment– and share the discussion with your friends!

Easy, right? Thanks for giving it a try!

    The main reason I haven’t been using Facebook Connect on blogs is because I’d rather have my name link to my blog URL than my Facebook profile, ya know?

    Hmm… interesting. That’s not really an issue for me since pretty much everything I do goes back to me one way or the other. But I can see how that’d be an issue for you.

    I’ve started doing it more on sites because I just get tired of filling out the form when I comment! I always click “remember me” but the cookie must expire or something.

    But I’m almost always logged into Facebook! (and google and Twitter)

    If I could use FB Connect to link to my FB Page instead, then I would for-sure use it. I’m just not a fan of leaving a trail to my personal FB account everywhere if I have another choice easily available.

    The whole commenting on facebook about blog posts has been weird to me – people click through my link to my blog post, read it … and then go back to facebook to comment on it. I don’t really understand it – but it is happening more and more!

    @matt- I don’t want to discourage that at all. In fact, I think that linking commenting here to Facebook could be a great way to amplify conversation.

    I wasn’t trying to say I think it’s bad – and I think what you’re doing is a good idea. It’s just been something strange to me – I’ve noticed it with my blog where it seems my posts get more comments on facebook than they do on my blog – I guess it’s just really weird to me that someone would click through to my blog, read it, and then click back to facebook to leave a comment. Not a bad thing, just weird.

    Oh right, I get it. For me, there are a lot of comments on the post when it gets imported via RSS to my Facebook profile. So I really have two groups of commenters. Those who comment at adammclane.com and those who comment on blog content on Facebook.

    I think we’re actually talking about the same thing!
