    “Let’s have a personal and meaningful conversation.” That’s cute. Anyway, I went to a blog that had FB comments installed, and when I scrolled down to comments, there was my FB profile staring out at me. Automatically. I had never been to that blog before – had never even heard of it.

    I don’t want that. I don’t want it at any time, in any place, ever. So how do I stop it short of dumping facebook, which is starting to look like a good idea?

    Hi, this was very helpful, but there’s one thing – I don’t get any notification about the comments, I didn’t receive a message on facebook or wordpress or email.
    Do I have to change something in the settings? I didn’t find anything.

      Yes unfortunately Facebook comments are not synced with your comments.

    Hey @Syed Balkhi,
    Is it possible to install Facebook comments without plugin? I past comment code after related post but the same comments showing in all articles :(

    Can i do without plugins?

  14. Fiona says:

    Hi again,

    Can comments be hidden? I’m concerned that, if a lot of comments are posted (I wish, and I don’t want to limit to 5), that the plethora will clutter the page!

    Thanks again,

    I notice that this article, like most, has a “share this article” feature. Is this possible to add to my Word Press blog site so users can share it on social media?

    I hope you can help me.

    I’m In the process of installing the Facebook comments plug-in to my wp website. It is asking me to put an APP ID how do I go about getting this – I tried going through – But that just seemed to take me in a circle, and i never got what I needed. Is there some other way to get this information for the setup phase.

  17. Indigo says:

    I did this, but the comments only show from “post on Facebook” to me, because my app is listed as “in development.” It wants me to submit the app for review, even though I have no real app, just trying to use this plug in. How are people getting past this? So long as in development, no one but people in app roles can see anything posted to Facebook by the app. Thanks in advance for your help.

  18. Joseph says:

    Hi… I guest the comment notifications doesn’t show up by default.

    By the way, is this the recommend Facebook comment plugin? Any other alternative that you recommend?

    I notice that WPBeginner doesn’t use Disqus any more. Just curious what comment plugin are you using now and why? :-)


  19. Patricia says:

    Just installed the plugin. Thanks for this tip!
