We have been using Disqus from more than a year now and its truly has been a most satisfying experience for us. Though there were couple of features that we all missed in the popular blog comment system, Disqus, but we all hoped that this particular day would soon come where Disqus would give an overall to the way the popular comment system plays its role in the blogging world.
I am proud to list out those amazing new features from Disqus team, and we hope that there would surely be many more of such mouth watering updates to come.
Disqus Team Says:
We’re really excited to hit this milestone. We started building a new Disqus to rethink what’s truly important for a discussion platform.
Disqus 2012: What Does It Has To Offer?

Faster Than Before
Disqus was known for its delay in its comment updating on the blog. The user used to leave comment and it would actually get updated on the 'recent comment widget' and email feed after no earlier than 30+ minutes. That was something pretty annoying and i am glad that Disqus team has dealt with that issue with a spark.
The new Disqus 2012 is pretty fast (though i still have to test it even more). But without a doubt, i have surely felt a great improvement in the updates and email feeds.
Like other popular blog comment systems, Disqus gave a double dose to its comments by introducing a new 'Likes' system where users could thumbs up or in fact 'like' a particular comment. The more likes a comment gets, the higher it sticks to the discussion thread.
This would surly encourage readers to comment sensibly with more enthusiasm then before.
Personal Comment Feed IntegrationDisqus team has integrated personnel feeds (your own blog comments threads) right into Disqus 2012. So if you're commenting on any other blog, you can reply to your own blog comments right from there and do not have to leave out and visit your own blog for that purpose.
This is an amazing feature and surely have a huge potential to make Disqus the next big thing in year 2012.
SEO-OptimizedDisqus team is set to make Disqus 2012 even one step further in coming days by making it search engine friendly (SEO-optimized). By this update, our valuable blog comments could then be indexed by Google and other search engines to show up comment threads in their search results.
This will surely effect our blog traffics positively. Watch the video below to get your final inspiration to get started with Disqus 2012 if you haven't already.
