Enabling comments on your blog with Facebook (Method 1/2)

You can integrate a comment system on your DropInBlog using your Facebook account, allowing your visitors to start conversations about your blog posts.

Below you can find a video tutorial on how to enable comments on your DropInBlog posts with Facebook.

This is one of the two methods you can use to add a comment system to your DropInBlog. The alternative is doing it through Disqus Comments.

Step 1

Create a Facebook app (in a few clicks).

Go to
Sign in to your Facebook account, or create a new one, then click Get Started.
Follow the prompts to complete the Developer Account registration.
Once logged in to your Developer Account, click Create App.

When asked what you want your app to do, under Looking for something else? select Other then click Next.
Select Business as the app type then click Next.
Name your app (any name works), and click Create App.
Next, you will see the Facebook App ID which you should copy.

Step 2

Once you have your app ID copied, you need to activate the comment system on your DropInBlog.

In DropInBlog, navigate to Settings.
Scroll down to Social Settings and click on the Comment system toggle (to turn it on).
Paste your Facebook App ID (ignore the Disqus Shortname option – that is for the other comment method).
Save all changes and refresh your site to see your new comment system.

Once successfully integrated, Facebook Comments will appear at the end of each blog post.
