Google uses web tools that trawls through the web and read comments.Comments published via Facebook accompanies a user's name,profile picture and link to your account. With this anyone searching for your name will reveal your comments and can potentially stumble through your Facebook account. Privacy issues will be a major question, the Google will have to solve in the long run. Earlier the search engines where unable to index the comments made on a website through disqus and Intense debate as this platforms used a different program which was not easy to read.
