Activity Feed

activity feedThe activity plugin displays the most important activity going on at your blog. Whether somebody has liked a post, commented on the Facebook comment box or shared the post with their friends on Facebook. If a user is logged into Facebook, the plugin will be personalized to highlight content from their friends.

I would only recommend this plugin if you believe there is enough activity going on at your blog other wise it wont leave a good impression at the visitors.

 

Comments

comments box

Comments plugin lets users to comment on your blog. A great feature of this social plugin is that when ever someone comments on your blog and leaves the "Post to Facebook" check box ticked, the comment appears on his Facebook activity feed with a link back to your blog and thus making increasing more links towards your blog.

Also this comment box is extremely user friendly and is quite simple to understand.
