Pop & Hiss switching to Facebook commenting system

Facebook-comments Pop & Hiss today is switching to a new commenting system.

The system requires commenters to sign in through their Facebook accounts. People without Facebook accounts will not be able to leave comments.

Readers will have the option of posting their Pop & Hiss comments on their Facebook walls, but that's not required.

The change is part of an experiment on Pop & Hiss and several other Times entertainment blogs. Readers are welcome to express their opinions about the news -- and about how the new Facebook comments system is working.

Jimmy Orr, the Los Angeles Times managing editor in charge of latimes.com, discusses the Facebook system in greater depth.

That isn't good. Facebook is not interested in protecting the privacy of its users. This is bad with mail fraud, and identity theft on the rise. Doesn't anybody understand this?
