Pros of Facebook Comment System.

Therefore, allowing Facebook comment in your blogger blog will let them leave their comment within a single click. Which is very user-friendly and encouraging for commenters. No registration, no sign in, no hesitation will surely improve the entire comment system of your blogger blog.
Spam Free Comments: Automatic comment spam is truly annoying for bloggers. By using Facebook comment box in blogger, you will be able to say goodbye to automatic spam bot comments. This is one of the most important features of Facebook comment platform. Facebook has its own spam filter to prevent robots from creating a Facebook account.
Effective Comment Bridge: Facebook comments will be shown both on the blog and on the Facebook. In fact, if someone leaves a comment on the Facebook for the same conversation, that will also be shown under your blog post. This will dramatically increase the user engagement and interaction. Also, there will be a great chance to become a post viral on Facebook through that conversation.
SEO Friendly Comments: Obviously, Facebook comments are completely SEO friendly. Many people still have the doubt that Facebook comments are not accessible and indexable by Google. Presently, it is not true. The various case study shows that every single comment generated by Facebook comment system will remain under the blog post and will be crawlable and indexable by search engines.
Chance to get more traffic: Millions of people spend a lot of time on Facebook every day. Among them, when someone comments on any of your blog posts, this activity of that person will also be shown on his news feed. This type of auto promotion will bring more readers, followers, commenters and valuable social traffic for your blog.
