Facebook roll out nested comment replies to pages

Nested comment replies on Facebook Business Pages are here!

What a lovely surprise was in store when we logged in this morning. Facebook have enabled nested replies on our page. This is a feature we have been waiting a long time for. It’s always been difficult replying to a specific comment if someone else has also commented and your reply would get lost. Now you can reply to specific comments and Facebook will nest them, and bring active conversations to the top.

This is what the Facebook help page says about them:

Now, replies are shown below the comments, so it’s clear who’s responding to which comment.  The most active conversations are shown at the top, and comments marked as spam are moved to the bottom.

Have you checked your page yet to see if it’s rolled out yet?

Facebook rolling out threaded, ranked comments

Facebook is rolling out threaded comments and ranking.

The new comments for pages and users who have enabled “follow,” have been in testing since late last year, and starting next week will be available on an opt-in basis for all accounts with more than 10,000 fans or followers.

We’ve seen it tested a few times in the past but it soon disappears again which is a shame as it’s a fantastic feature and makes reading and replying to comments so much easier.

Let’s hope they eventually roll this out to everyone and not just the profiles and pages with > 10,000 followers.
