Facebook VP Explains New Comments System [VIDEO]

Posted: March 2, 2011 in Uncategorized

Facebook launched a new public commenting platform Tuesday, but the company didn’t do too much commenting about it in public. The exception: Dan Rose, Facebook’s VP of Partnerships and Platform Marketing, who spoke at the Webtrends Engage conference in San Francisco.

In the video below, exclusive to Mashable, Rose explains exactly what will change with the Comments plug-in. First of all, the important friends in your social graph will appear a lot more prominently. And secondly, the plug-in allows comments you make on a third-party website or news page to appear in your Facebook news feed for the first time.

What do you think? Is this a prudent move for the company? Will the Comments plug-in dominate commenting on the Web and cause trouble for other comment software makers? Let us know your thoughts — where else? — in the comments.
