Facebook is getting ready to thrust its new Comments plugin upon users who haven't taken the initiative to update it themselves. The new plugin was unveiled at the company's F8 developers conference earlier this year, and comes with some new bells and whistles.

The most interesting part about the new version is that it syncs comments between content on your website and that same content as shared on your Facebook page.

Facebook product manager Varun Bhartia said in a blog post:

This week, we will be updating all previous versions of the Comments Plugin to v2.3 that was announced at F8. This new version includes a refreshed Comments Moderation Tool with new UI, layout, and better spam controls, as well as changes on the Comments front end such as a cleaner design to make the plugin compatible with more sites and optimized for mobile.

This update will happen automatically, so your app/site will have the benefit of the plugin’s new, updated look and functionality without any work required to make the change.

You can get a better look at what the new plugin has to offer in our coverage from March.

You can find the documentation for the plugin here.
