Many prefer diqus coz it pays too, its one way to easily monetize your blog, i once got 29 dollars in one day. The around the web links each time u click on the the website u are on, makes money. so like the fact it doesnt work on opera mini used to bug me, coz ilikes wanteda lotof facebook comments, but then i realised comments are useless, whats useful is to lock readers so that they read and read and click on adverts.kkkk. BTW i run a news website anwayscone might argue that comments might help drive new traffic, but then it kind of eves out with spammers and trolls, and its no uncommon for regular visitors to turn the comment thread into a chat. so comments i dont give a hoot about it..after all its mostly insults and in any case whoever comments on hardcopy newspapers? i have like and share buttons to drive new traffic for me, not to mention that i share all interesting links on big facebook pages.
