Facebook comment box is a useful tool for bloggers to increase & improve conversations and drive more traffic since the post commented on by your blog visitors will be shown on the visitor’s wall on Facebook.

Today, I want to share a simple process that will enable bloggers to add Facebook Comment box to their blogs without any ado.

How to Apply Facebook Comment Box on Blogger Blog

Step:1 ==> Create a Facebook App ID

1. You need a Facebook App Id. Go to Facebook Developers Page to create one.

2. Click on “+ Create New App” a window will pop out, so enter your blog Name and click on “Continue” as shown in the image below:

Step:2 ==> Add Comment Box Code To Blog Templates

1. Go to your Dashboard >> Templates.

2.Use CTRL + F key on your computer keyboard to search for <html and replace it with the code below.

<html xmlns:fb='http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml'

3. Search for <body> tag in you template and add the code below after it.


<div id='fb-root'/>
<script>
    window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
    FB.init({
      appId  : &#39;YOUR_APP_ID&#39;,
      status : true, // check login status
        cookie : true, // enable cookies to allow the server to access the   session
      xfbml  : true  // parse XFBML
    });
  };
    (function() {
    var e = document.createElement(&#39;script&#39;);
      e.src = document.location.protocol +   &#39;//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js&#39;;
    e.async = true;
      document.getElementById(&#39;fb-root&#39;).appendChild(e);
    }());
</script>

4. Replace YOUR_APP_ID with the App ID you note in Step 1 above.

5. Search for </head> tag and add the open graph meta tags below above the </head> tag


<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageTitle' property='og:title'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.url' property='og:url'/>
<meta content='Just Naira' property='og:site_name'/>
<meta content='YOUR_BLOG_LOGO_IMAGE_LINK' property='og:image'/>
<meta content='YOUR_APP_ID' property='fb:app_id'/>
<meta content='http://www.facebook.com/justnaira' property='fb:admins'/>
<meta content='article' property='og:type'/>

Now Make the Following Changes on the Code above:
Replace Just Naira with your blog name.
Replace YOUR_BLOG_LOGO_IMAGE_LINK with your blog logo image url.
Replace YOUR_APP_ID with your app id.
Replace http://www.facebook.com/justnaira with your Facebook page url.

6. Search for the any of these tag:
<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>
or
<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>
or
<data:post.body/>
Add the code below after any of the tags above and save your template.


<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div style='padding:0px 0px 0px 0px; margin:0px 0px 0px 0px;'><script src='http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1'/>
<div> <fb:comments  colorscheme='light' expr:href='data:post.url' expr:title='data:post.title' expr:xid='data:post.id' width='520'/></div>
<div style='color:#fff; background-color:#3B5998;border: solid 1px #ddd; font-size:10px; padding:3px;'>Facebook Blogger Plugin by <b><a alt='blogger templates' href='http://www.justnaira.com/' style='text-decoration:underline; color:#fff;' target='_blank' title='blogger templates'>JustNaira.com</a></b> | <b><a alt='Facebook-Comment-Box-widgets' href='http://www.justnaira.com/2012/07/how-to-add-facebook-comment-box-to.html' style='text-decoration:underline; color:#fff;' target='_blank' title='Blogger Widgets'>Get Widget</a></b></div></div>
</b:if>
  •  If you want to use the dark scheme then simply replace light with dark
  • To change the Comments box size, change this value width='520'

You can keep Facebook Comment box and Blogger default comment box. But in case you want to make Facebook comment box your default comment box, go to Settings > Posts and Comments and set the Show Comments option to Hide and Save the Settings.

Don’t hesitate to use the comment box in case you encounter any difficulties.
