Team,

 

I've been reading the front page articles, and while I don't usually pay attention to the comments I've noticed something that I don't understand. What is with the commenters posting peoples names in the comments? it only seems to be in certain articles and it also seems to be from mostly Facebook users. I'm usually up on the latest internet trick, but this one makes no sense.

They're where people have commented on the FB post tagging friends so they will go look at said article. Personally, I find it annoying (and lazy) when people do that.

Follow-up

 

Example:

The article: http://www.itstactic...an-do-about-it/ has the comments from the FB post, https://www.facebook...53381103974158. It looks like comment where people are just tagging people were removed from the FB post but the Wordpress plugin they're using on the site it probably consumes the FB comments and caches or adds them to the WP db.

ok, that makes sense, and like everything else on Facebook, is totally annoying.
