Facebook’s New Comments plugin for websites

Facebook has announced the new commenting system for websites, which can provide Facebook wall like commenting for web pages. When someone posts a comment on a webpage, it can simultaneously posted on his FB wall also. If any of his friends reply to that post, that could appear on the original webpage’s comment section – which is the best part of it.

This is how the post appears on the wall of the commenting user.
