Facebook tests nested comments feature


Facebook is gradually rolling out their nested or threaded comments feature, which allows users to reply to individual comments on a post.

“We are testing a new way to add comments to a post on Facebook. With this test you will be able to reply to another comment as well as the original post. This is just a small test at this stage,” a Facebook spokesperson told Venture Beat.

The report by Venture Beat came with a screenshot of the update, showing a ‘Reply’ option next to the ‘Like’ button. Sources say that the user to whom you replied will receive a notification.

The feature allows two layer of replies, which means that one can post another set of replies to an existing reply to a comment.

Selected users and pages in different countries, including Thailand and the Philippines, already have access to the nested comments feature. No word yet on when it will be officially available to all users.
