A little love for Disqus

There are days when I feel like a Fred Wilson portfolio fan boy.  I am seriously high on Twitter (their vision of what’s to come, I think is impressive).  But I also love Disqus, the comment system I use on all my blogs.

Both of these technology companies do something that is both an obvious need and difficult to accomplish.  Simply put, that’s making the conversation more interesting.  One of Fred’s common themes in his blog is that the comments are much more interesting than the actual posts.  I don’t know that he gives himself enough credit, but the underlying point is accurate.  There is real value in the conversations that are going on on blogs, on tweets, and other places.

I really value technology that brings those conversations to new audiences, and allows for more conversations. Disqus just released a new version (which will be appearing here shortly).  Go check out Fred’s post, and the official Diqus post.
You can follow me on Twitter here.  My Disqus profile is here.

    While I just started using Disqus, I do think it has it's place in commenting. I posted on other blog that, while Disqus works great, your Disqus comments are actually housed somewhere else. If there happened to be a problem with Disqus, those comments might go away. I prefer to have a blend of Disqus comments and traditional WP comments as the WP comments are housed under my WP install. I don't have to worry about those going away. Just my 2 cents worth.

    That's a common concern. I'm not really hung up on that, because I could lose the WordpRess comments to database issues or whatnot as well.

    I love Disqus since it makes conversation easier. Plus, now I have one place where people can go to to see everywhere I've commented. I can find new blogs by tracking where other interesting commenters participate.

    I currently don't allow comments on my blog but I have thinking about changing the permissions to do allow. Would you recommend Disqus for comments hosting and what do you use to help combat spam?

    Thanks,

    Ces deux entreprises de technologie faire quelque chose qui est à la fois un besoin évident et difficile à accomplir. Tout simplement, c'est faire la conversation plus intéressante. Fred l'un des thèmes de la commune dans son blog, c'est que les commentaires sont beaucoup plus intéressants que les postes.

    I've been thinking about adding Disqus to my blogs. I do agree that blog comments can definitely add to the conversation. In addition they help keep the blog page fresh. However, there are some downfall with blog comments such as spam. Especially the comments that make no sense or have any relevancy to the post.

    I think Brad is right – its best to have a blend or Word Press and Disqus comments on a blog. I also like expression engine for building comments into websites.
