UPDATE: This change will not take place on Thursday evening, but will instead take place early next week.
Thursday evening, you will need a Facebook account to comment on the OCVarsity blog. To see how this works, see any article on OCVarsity.com, where Facebook commenting has been in place for some time now. The change will no longer allow anonymous commenting and will tie users’ comments to their Facebook identities. Facebook has recently developed a series of privacy controls allowing others to see only what you want them to see.
Also making the switch is our parent site, OCRegister.com. To learn more about the reason for the switch, read this article by Orange County Register Editor Ken Brusic. And you can check out the Facebook commenting FAQ.
