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 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).
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" What do you think about this new Facebook feature? Could this help people and businesses drive more engagement on their pages?
