Today Facebook revamped the commenting plugin and I've decided to give it a whirl.
I was forced to delete my existing seven (!) comments to make way for the new system, but I'm keen to jump in and see what it's all about. Who knows, maybe we'll look at adding more social plugins to Mighty Ape in the future.
Ignoring some minor visual tweaks, the plugin only took a few minutes to implement.

I think Facebook commenting is a big win for bloggers and will result in more comments, more traffic and more readers. The only negative is that your commenting data sits on Facebook and readers who don't have a Facebook account can't submit a comment. I understand both of these issues will be addressed in a future update.
UPDATE: if Facebook is blocked at your workplace you may run into problems commenting on blogs. This may actually be a fairly significant problem for many people.
