facebook reply links

Facebook is starting to roll out a new feature that will allow page managers to let anyone to reply directly to comments on their pages. Facebook prompted us on our DashBurst Facebook page to turn on this new reply feature! Previously, whenever you replied to a comment on a Facebook post, your comment would get inserted at the bottom of the comments in a chronological order. This could make it really difficult to reply directly to other people’s specific comments or follow any orderly conversation with multiple people chiming away. Now Reply links have made it much easier to have a conversation on your Facebook page. Each comment has it’s own thread where people can comment on the given post, or directly to comments within nested threads. The most active conversations are then shown at the top (sort of like Reddit).

Turn on Replies

To activate Facebook reply links on your page, check to see if you recieve a prompt to do so from Facebook on your page or go to Edit Page > Manage Permissions > Check “Allow replies to comments on my Page”

  1. How coo. I this is a neat new feature that’ll take off for FB. With the new hashtag feature too, FB is making some awesome changes I like.

    Thanks for sharing.


  2. All I can say is – its about time! Now if they would just stop trying to charge me for everything else (like sending a personal message to a friend) I might fall back in love with it. Might.

  3. should be good but it fails, the reply function then changes the comment order so the comments themselves are no longer in chronological order just making it more confusing.
