App.net introduces the Comments Widget

From the App.net blog:

We get a lot of requests to create a way to leave a comment on a web site using your App.net account. So, at the last App.net Hackathon @voidfiles decided to build the App.net Comments Widget, which does just that. […]

The App.net Comments Widget is built on top of the App.net API, and all comments are actually public posts. Conversations within the App.net Comments Widget – comments, replies, and stars — can take place on your web site, or inside an App.net client as well.

We wanted to make the App.net Comments Widget as accessible as possible, so it only requires one line of html to install on your web site. We also enabled login with Facebook, so folks can participate, even if they don’t yet have an App.net account.

This is a great idea and a straightforward implementation. One more reason to be a satisfied App.net paid user, or to join the platform if you’re not aboard already.


 

In related news, if you’re an App.net user you can subscribe to my Broadcast channel to get real-time push notifications every time I publish a new article here. I’m also testing the Subscribe via email service, which allows you to receive email notifications when a new article is published. (Check the sidebar.)

Here’s what a Broadcast email notification looks like:
