The Comment System

Baked into Disqus' core is a powerful comment system that is designed to drive more participation and engagement on your site. Millions of people are already recognized by the Disqus system, making it easier for them to be part of your site's community.

The Network

The Disqus network consists of millions of communities, over 60 million community profiles, and billions of conversations. There’s a good chance that many of your visitors are already active community members on other sites using Disqus!

The profile system built into Disqus enables community members to manage their comments and community reputations across all the Disqus-enabled sites that they visit. Using these profiles, you and other visitors can find out more about the people participating on websites.

Disqus has extensive integration with popular social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter. With Disqus, people can quickly comment and share using an existing social network profile.

Having a popular community is hard to manage. Fortunately, Disqus also offers all of the right tools to make cultivating a large community possible. Within the admin section of Disqus, you'll find granular settings and best-of-class moderation tools.
