We know, Facebook is all about engaging users, traditionally we used tagging system to notify the users about reply on comment. This was really a bigger headache. if the Facebook post has 100+ comments it should really difficult to figure out the original comment for which reply is made. It was the story of yesterday, now Facebook launched a new feature for fan page which will let you enable threaded comment system. That means users can directly reply to a comment, and it will appear right below it. The move would make it much easier for users to respond to individual comments left on wall posts and this feature definitely improve the engagement on your page. By default Facebook Reply-to-Comment is no enabled, you have to enable it manually. But if the page has more than 10,000 followers threaded replies will be automatically applied to profiles with and opt in for brand Pages until July 10, 2013.
How to activate Reply-to-Comments feature:
Facebook threaded comment system can be activated by following these simple steps:
- Go to Facebook Page ( you are admin of )
- Click on Edit page > Manage Permissions
- Scroll down to replies, and check the check box to enable this feature
- Click on Save and you are done.
Once you enable it, will be shown for new posts/updates, it won't be activated for existing published updates. This is a minor update, though from a page admin point of view, this is very useful for more user engagement.
