Facebook Commenting

MidnightintheDesert.com uses the Facebook commenting tool for websites. If you are logged into Facebook from another tab or window, it will show “you and your picture” in the comments entry box. I DO NOT SEE IT, NOR ANYONE ELSE, until you actually enter a comment and press ENTER. It appears whether or not you Liked or Friended the page. You may have seen this on other websites around the Internet. Any site that wants to use Facebook commenting, will show your your picture if you’re logged on.

If you went to Facebook and logged off, then any sites using Facebook comments would not show your picture. I know it’s alarming that the site appears to know who you are, but in reality, it’s only Facebook that knows you’re logged on, and Facebook pre-authorizing you to comment on a site that uses the Facebook Connect commenting system.
