The Facebook comments plug-in is the latest update to hit the popular social media website. Users can now comment on websites via Facebook. You’ll get to learn more about the person posting as well, with additional information such as school, mutual friends and any other personal info listed right next to the name.

There’s also comment ranking, which will put the most relevant comments from friends and family on the top. Finally, what’s being called the most interesting feature is the threaded conversation. Whether the individual makes a comment on a post on or off Facebook, the comments will be threaded together so that friends will be in-the-know constantly.

Using the Facebook comments plug-in update is almost like having a mini Twitter feed in your account. It’d be interesting to see if online newspapers and magazines start to integrate this feature onto their websites.
