Facebook reminded developers that the new comments plugin it announced at its F8 global developers conference in San Francisco in March will automatically be implemented on applications and pages this week.

Product manager Varun Bhartia wrote in a Facebook Media blog post:

This week, we will be updating all previous versions of the comments plugin to v2.3, which was announced at F8. This new version includes a refreshed comments moderation tool with a new user interface, layout and better spam controls, as well as changes on the comments front end such as a cleaner design to make the plugin compatible with more sites and optimized for mobile.

This update will happen automatically, so your app/site will have the benefit of the plugin’s new, updated look and functionality without any work required to make the change.

Here is what the previous version looks like:

Here is what you will be seeing this week:
