Introducing Facebook Connect for our comments section - read the full textStarting today, you will be able to log in our Comments system with your Facebook account. No, you don't need to have a Facebook account to comment, but it will make things easier for both you and us. By using Facebook's authentication system, you get the benefit of reserving a nickname to use on...

Hi.... good move GSMArena. Don't hafta enter the nickname again! And I don't like to be anonymous. If ppl don't have guts, they shouldn't comment! U should remove this anonymous feature!

BTW, my first post with FB :)

Why couldn't a system such as open Id or google connect be used? I suppose it is due to the sincerity of facebook users of their accounts? The latter was sarcasm. Having an option to use both log on methods would be more beneficial. Look at bitbucket or stackoverflow for some ways to implement such features.

There is just one other thing GSMArena can do hopefully, and that would be to change the arrangement of comments. Like the first ones be first and the later comments follow.

This helps in reading an interesting article's comments as one can follow the comments naturally instead of having to see responses to some comments that began pages earlier.

Excellent idea.
The troll messages really drag the level of the site down.
I watch this site at work, it's the official GSM info repository at the Mobile Phone operator where I work. I also check stuff when I got nothing to do.
Problem is, they blocked Facebook here...
