Is It Required To Install The Smart Comment System In Order To Use KYA?
The Smart Comment System is not required to use KYA. It is a separate comment system powered by Facebook Comments, it does not (currently) integrate with any other comment systems such as Disqus. If you choose to implement the Smart Comment System by default it only applies to posts from the date which you install KYA (so it will not overwrite any existing comment data).
The reason you would use our Smart Comment System over traditional Facebook Comments is because we have technology that runs in the background to analyze what readers are saying in the comments so we can those data points to make even more personalized content recommendations to them via our Recommended Articles widget (also optional to implement).
