Add Facebook Comments to Your Blogger's Blog

Facebook comment box is one of the useful tool for bloggers to increase conversations. So here in this post I will teach you how to add/integrate Facebook comment box to blogger in simple steps. Before getting into the process I recommend you to back up your template and previous comments in blogger wont be visible if you use Facebook commenting system.

Hide Existing Comments - The best way to start off is by hiding the comments made from the Blogger System. To do that, go to Settings > Posts and Comments and set the Show Comments option to Hide and Save the Settings

1. Create a Facebook Application

To use Facebook comments on your website, create a new comment application for your website on the Facebook Application page. This step is required, whether you add Facebook comments manually using a third-party plugin or with the official Facebook plugin.

Simply click on the “+ Create New App” button on the Facebook Application page, and enter a unique name for your application in the “App Display Name” field. The “App Namespace” field doesn’t have to be filled in for Facebook comments (it’s used with the Facebook Open Graph Protocol).

2. You will then be provided with an “App ID/API key” and an “App secret key.” Copy the App ID.

In the App Domain Field give (If you are using a custom domain give that) Give your Blog Address in the Site URL field under “Website” and Save The Changes. Copy the Application ID from the screen
3. Add Application and Moderator Meta Tags

Modify the below code with the application id copied in step 2.

<meta content='YOUR_FACEBOOK_APPLICATION_ID'   property='fb:app_id'/>

e.g. - <meta content='221595294600904'   property='fb:app_id'/>

Go to Template/Design > Edit HTML and paste the above code just below

<head><meta content='221595294600904'   property='fb:app_id'/>
You should create the Facebook Application and the above fb:app_id meta tag should be added to your Blog. Otherwise you won’t be able to manage/moderate your Comments from a single Place(you will have to go to posts one my one and moderate and that too is possible only if you have added the fb:admins open graph meta tag).

4. Add FB Comments - Now you have to add the Facebook Comment Form to your Blog Template. To do that Go to Template/Design > Edit HTML and click on the “Expand Widget Templates” check-box.

Find the following code in your template(Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F), and immediately below that paste the following code:

<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>

If you can’t find this, then find

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>
If you cant find that as well, then find


Paste the following code just below the line that you just found out

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item">
<div id="fb-root"></div>
 var js, id = 'facebook-jssdk'; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}
 js = d.createElement('script'); = id; js.async = true;
 js.src = "//";
<fb:comments width='450' colorscheme='light' expr:title='data:post.title'
 expr:href='data:post.url' expr:xid=''/>

5.FB Namespace Declaration - Next you have to add the fb namespace to your template tag.Your template should have the specification for the fb tag that you have used. The following XML namespace declaration will take care of that. To declare the namespace, find

and change it to
<html xmlns:fb=""

(there is a space after the 2008/fbml” )The following screenshot will help you out.

Save the Template. This namespace declaration is necessary for all FBML widgets using the fb tag. So if you have already added the namespace declaration while adding some other FB plugin, then you can skip this.

You are Done !!!!

Managing Your Comments

When you are logged in to your Facebook account, the Facebook comment plugin will detect that you are the admin(it will detect you if you have added the fb:app_id or fb:admins meta tags). You will be able to manage the Settings and moderate the comments from there.
