After hearing about the possibility of nested comments on Facebook a year or so ago we have been waiting for it to go into effect; to make commenting and answering comments somewhat civilized and useful, instead of answering someone directly 18 comments down the line.
I posted this nested comment, but have not been able to get another one to nest. Typical for the Facebook site though, sometimes things work and sometimes they don’t. Keep your eyes open this actually may be an improvement on the site finally.
Have you seen any Facebook posts that allow nested comments yet?
Are you excited about this possibility to reply directly to another commenter?
If you do see them please let us know if it was on a personal post or a business page.
The ability to reply directly under another comment was discovered this morning (2/25/13) by Brad West. Ah, he also captured the image and wrote this post. For those of you that do not know, Brad is my other half…he is also the Facebook user in our house.
UPDATE 3/28/13 – You now have the option to turn on Replies for your Facebook Business Page!
How to turn on Facebook Replies -
Log in as your page,
Click EDIT PAGE (at the top),
Click MANAGE PERMISSIONS,
Scroll down (near bottom) and check the box TURN ON REPLIES.
Now as people comment on your post, others can reply right back to an individual as you see in the picture above. The replies option will only show on post that you make AFTER you turn them on.
