Facebook released its updated Comments plugin today, which includes a robust set of new features. The social networking site also announced a set of publisher partners that will now integrate the plugin as their commenting platform of choice.

The robust features, which include threaded comments, moderation controls and the ability to sync the comments to a Facebook Page, signal another step toward Facebook’s proliferation across the web with its social plugins. Perhaps the most notable feature is the ability to sync comments across a site and a publisher’s Facebook Page. This has the potential to increase the discussion and commentary on websites that see a bulk of the discussion take place on its Facebook Page.

The plugin can be seen in action on Facebook’s blog, and partner sites include The Economist,,Redbook and Examiner.

Though the current functionality only allows commenting with a Facebook account, the plugin updates were supposed to include login support for Twitter users as well, but the functionality was not released.
