Disqus V3: Conversations And Communities

Disqus the comment system I use for this site recently received its biggest upgrade since the service launched. With the aim being to change the way people think about discussion on the web, the upgrade concentrates on the conversations and communities that form on sites.

I was concerned that the improvements may change core features and disrupt the service but I'm really impressed with the enhancements. I rate the profiles because I have expressed several times that this was an aspect that needed to be introduced. Another feature requested was to integrate the login systems, Disqus now identifies comments you’ve left using Twitter and Facebook Connect and merges them into your profile. I'm impressed and will continue to use Disqus because the service is reliable and continues to improve -
