I carried out a small survey in my school asking people which feature would they like to see on Facebook or what is the one thing that Facebook is missing. I received some very obvious answers like a dislike button (it is not going to happen my friends) and some very out of the box answers like an auto tagging feature for photos on Facebook. I asked them if they would appreciated threaded comments or not. The initial reaction from most people was “Erm..What is that?” Once I explained the reply to comment feature the response went something on average like “That. would. be. awesome!”
The reason I bought this topic up today is that I remember seeing seeing threaded comments on Facebook a few days back. Though that was their only sighting and no other credible proof could be found. I took this screenie to iterate the fact that Facebook might just be getting nested comments.
The screenshot is obviously not of the post on which I saw the new comment system (couldn’t take a screenshot :() but is just reiterating what I said earlier.
