Disqus commenter profiles make it even easier to get to know and follow the people participating in your favorite online communities.

Following made easy

We’ve made it easier to follow your favorite community members by including a nice large follow button as well as including two new tabs that show a user’s list of followers, and a list of people that the user is following.

The new profiles were designed with mobile in mind so they will automatically resize to fit all different screen sizes – this makes the whole experience seamless no matter what device you’re using.

Update Your Own Profile

You can make your new profile shine by uploading your own custom avatar as well as adding a short bio about yourself. To experience the new Disqus profiles, click on any commenter profile photo your find in your favorite Disqus community.

The latest profile features at a glance:

  • Profiles open in the sidebar next to the comments so you never lose your reading place again

  • Ability to see the recent activity, comments, following lists, and favorite discussions of any user

  • Report a user that's breaking the Disqus Terms of Service (spam, inappropriate profile, etc.)

  • Responsive styles automatically resize the profile to fit different window heights

  • Automatic Translations: The profile modal uses the same language as the embed from which it is launched​​
