Disqus is one of the most popular 3rd party commenting systems used amongst bloggers and website owners. If your mobile website is been powered by mobstac, you can use Disqus comment form on your site as alternative to the Facebook comment form.
One of the advantages of Disqus comment platform over the Facebook commenting system is that it allows users to comment on your blog via social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google, open URL as well as its own Disqus account. It also allows commenters to post as guest. Leaving comments or responding to a comment on a Disqus-powered system is a bliss, it is almost real time.
Disqus is mobile friendly; hence commenting is not affected if your readers are on mobile browser. There are Disqus apps (currently available for iPhone and Android) for site owners to manage comments and their communities on the go. More so, Disqus is compatible with search engines, in another word – SEO friendly.
Whether you are using Disqus for the first time or migrating from other commenting systems, integrating Disqus with your mobstac-powered mobile site can be fairly simple. You just need to register a new account on Disqus first and then add your Disqus shortname in the settings page of your mobstac dashboard. That’s it, your mobstac mobile site will start showing Disqus comment form.
