Facebook has rolled out a new feature called Replies. It allows page admins to reply directly to a comment instead of posting a comment.
How did it work before
When you had a super busy thread you had to reply to a comment with a comment. This would be further down the thread and it was never readily apparent whom you were responding to.
How it works now
Now you have the ability to reply directly to the comment similar to what you see on blogs. We like to call them “conversation threads”. The most active comments will rise to the top of the discussion and comments marked as spam are moved to the bottom.
According to Facebook replies will make it easier to respond to people who have commented on your page. You can reply to a specific comment by clicking Reply under someone else’s comment. The replies are shown blew the comment, so it’s clear who’s responding to which comment.
When will you have it?
Currently you have the option to turn this feature on, you should see a notification when you visit your Facebook page. It will be turned out automatically for pages and profiles with more than 10,000 followers on Monday. It will be turned on for all pages by July 10.
What do you think of the new feature?
