I've noticed that other websites that have members have also allowed "non-members" to make comment post on blogs and videos by allowing a "facebook module" of some sort at the bottom of the comment section. Can Ning add this feature too? When I read the article, I scrolled down to comment section and there was my "facebook" account. I could just type and leave a comment without being a member on www.examiner.com and I really wish we had that for people who don't want to be members, but do want to leave a comment.
They are working on this, but it is not available yet.
Great idea! We agree that this would be a nice addition. Check out our Product Roadmap. Facebook integration for comments is the most likely option of the choices we currently are considering.
Sites like the newspaper site you point out often want this so they can attract non-anonymous commenters.
I prefer Disqus comments.
Any news on the release of Facebook commenting?
Meanwhile, you use my idea here
Hi Bernard, thanks that is a great tip but it's specific about pages and groups right?
Yeah that's right. Perhaps, we can insert this comment box wherever we want with JQuery function.
When do you think the non-members commenting system would become live? I am eagerly waiting for this feature.
I don't have a specific timeline for you, but it is on our Product Roadmap for this year.
