Commenting Via Facebook: A PrimerS

On Friday we introduced you to Facebook Connect, the feature allowing you to leave Jalopnik comments via your Facebook account. Click through for a quick primer in Facebook commenting and remember to sign up!

The goal of Facebook Connect is to make it easier for readers with a Facebook account to join the always-captivating discussions that spring up underneath Jalopnik posts. Readers no longer have to register a separate account and wait for approval to join in the spirited debates and sometimes-hilarious banter. Commenting via Facebook is literally as easy as 1-2-3:

Step 1) Connect with Facebook

Of course, with freedom comes responsibility. Commenters, Facebook or otherwise, who dirty up the joint with offensive or stupid comments can and will be swiftly removed from the ranks of the Commentariat. As always, readers are encouraged to email me with questions, comments, or links to questionable comments. Happy commenting!
