Facebook Social Comments allows your website users to comment on joomla website. Facebook Social Comments Box plugin and module enables guest and logged in users to comment using their Facebook, Yahoo, AOL or Hotmail website account credentials. Most of the users are already logged into one of the these websites and can comment straight away. Facebook Social Comments plugin takes care of any spam bots and you do not have to worry about any spam posts.
Comments with highest quality are put above other comments for each user. For each user comments are ordered to show most relevant comments from friends, friends of friends, and most liked and active discussion threads. If there are any comments that are marked by admin and moderators as spam then those comments are marked as spam and they are hidden from view.
Facebook Social Comments distributes posted comments with friends or with people who like your Page on Facebook. If a user leaves the "Post to Facebook" box checked when she posts a comment, a story appears on her friends’ News Feed indicating that she’s made a comment on your website, which will also link back to your site hence increase in number of visits to your website.
Friends and people who like the Page can then respond to the discussion by liking or replying to the comment directly in the News Feed on Facebook or in the Comments Box on your site. Threads stay synced across Facebook and on the Comments Box on your site regardless of where the comment was made.

If you having problem to display plugin properly then make sure to disable all other Facebook extensions and then test to find out if there is any conflict. A lot of Facebook extensions are still using old Facebook API codes that can conflict with latest extensions.
Step 1: Install via Joomla extensions installer from Extensions > Install/Uninstall in the backend of Joomla.
Step 2: Goto Extensions > Plugin Manager to plublish and configure settings.
If you having any problems please read Forum and posts any questions you have.
If you having problem to display plugin properly then make sure to disable all other Facebook extensions and then test to find out if there is any conflict. If anther Facebook extension is still using old Facebook API codes then that can conflict with our extensions that are using latest API code. Please note that installation on Local Server will not work as Facebook Servers can not reach back to local server, to avoid any issues install it on Live Server. We have found that using IP address in URL instead of domain name can also cause problems with Facebook servers.
In most cases a simple install on top of exiting installed plugin will do the upgrade.
If you having an issues after upgrade you can try Uninstall old version and Install new version approach. Make sure to note down of settings you have configured before you uninstall old version as they will be removed when you Uninstall. Then install, configure and publish new version of plugin(s).
You can upgrade from Extensions > Install/Unistall page.
Please hover mouse pointer over configuration settings labels and you will see related documentation messages in a popup. Each settings label popup will tell you more about that setting. If you need more detail about any settings please use forum to post you questions and one of our support staff will reply as soon as possible.
Styling does not take effect if you have installed on your local host servers. You need to install it on actual live website servers.
Make sure to hard refresh page (Control+F5) to refresh page and also try cleaning cache to see changes taking effect.
