Finally! Facebook reveals their new threaded commenting system. Gone are the days of having to tag certain people in a comment to continue the conversation. You can now initiate a conversation and reply to a comment by hitting the “Reply” button.
Check out the Facebook threaded comment system in action!
Facebook have said they are only going to roll out their threaded comment system to Fan Pages with over 10,000 fans. But from what I’ve seen, I think every Fan Page will have the functionality if you accept it. I had to enable this feature on my Fan Page this morning.
According to Facebook, “conversation threads are re-ordered by relevance to viewers and may appear differently to each person based on their connections, specifically:
Positive Feedback: the amount of positive feedback based on the total number of Likes and Replies in a conversation thread, which includes Likes or Replies by the Page owner.
Connections: connections to participants in a thread may move the conversation higher. For example, conversations with Comments left by friends may appear at the top.
Negative Feedback: the total number of spam reports in a thread, as well as marks-as-spam made by the Page owner. We also may down-rank comments made by frequent spammers.”
Are you glad Facebook has made finally introduced the threaded comment system? Are you indifferent?
