AFPIMS has a Disqus comments module. It’s also possible to use another comments plug-in such as Facebook by copying the code and putting it into an HTML pro module.
However, it’s important to understand a few facts about U.S. Government official 2-way communication with the public.
First, every government platform with comments, including social media platforms run by government offices, must have a comment policy.
Additionally, whenever technologically possible, American citizens should have the write to comment anonymously.
SAMPLE COMMENT POLICY:

We will not post comments that are spam, are clearly "off topic," promote services or products, infringe on copyright protected material, or contain any links that don’t contribute to the discussion. Comments that make unsupported accusations will also not be posted. The Air Force and the Air Force alone will make a determination as to which comments will be posted.

News media representatives are asked to address questions to the public affairs through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments. Reporter questions will not be posted.
We recognize that the web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, moderating and posting of comments will occur during regular business hours 16 AFI35-107 15 MARCH 2017 Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible; in most cases, this means the next business day. For the benefit of robust discussion, we ask that comments remain "on topic." This means that comments will be posted only as they relate to the topic that is being discussed within the blog post. The views expressed on the site by non-federal commentators do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Air Force or the Federal Government.

If your comment is posted, your name will not be redacted or removed. In no circumstances will comments be posted that contain Social Security numbers, DoD ID numbers, AFOSI case numbers, addresses, email address or phone numbers. The default for the posting of comments is "anonymous", but if you opt not to, any information, including your login name, may be displayed on our site.
Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. We encourage your participation in our discussion and look forward to an active exchange of ideas.
