Disqus and IntenseDebate Add Good New Features

IntenseDebate and Disqus are the main two third party commenting systems for WordPress blogs that add a whole lot more features effortlessly on your part.

Today, IntenseDebate (owned by Automattic, the same company behind WordPress), has just rolled out new features. Commentators can now easily create their own poll, and embed their own YouTube videos, add smiles, among other features.

One of the main advantages Disqus (used on this blog) has is the ability for users to login with Facebook Connect where the comments also appear in the commentators newsfeed, which has the capacity to go viral.

I recently contacted Intense Debate and they told me they have no current intention of adopting Facebook Connect.

Another big advantage Disqus has is they’ve just announced a partnership with Ubervu, which will bring comments made on other sites such as Digg back to your own blog, further encouraging conversations on your own blog. Mashable has an exclusive preview of this new feature, but will be available to everyone fairly soon. Disqus just told me that they will release it to the general public soon.

    it is great, and now they've fixed the problems with the Reactions feature. They just need to do what IntenseDebate is doing and allow developers to make plugins like a YouTube video embed plugin or something

    I initially installed Intense Debate but something about it was leaving me discontented.
    It's a hard decision to make between the two.
    The clincher for me came when I realized I couldn't edit comments, or replies that I had already submitted – not without some messing about anyway. That was a show stopper.
    Having moved to Disqus I can say I'm very satisfied – nothing's perfect, but this is pretty good.

    Disqus is the best commenting system because it offers flexibility for users that want to surf more than 2-3 blogs. Creating one user that can access all the blogs was a brilliant idea and it helped the Disqus community grow.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
