Disqus is now social

Disqus has become successful as a provider of a plugin for use in web sites. The plugin provides the ability for web sites to allow comments for articles in the web site.

The Disqus web site has been modified substantially to make it into a full-fledged social network. Assuming you have a Disqus account, when you now login to your account you will get a news feed with stories from the people, blogs, and websites you follow. The Disqus web site also has some forums within their web site, which is a new feature.
