Facebook Testing New ‘Reply to Comments’ Feature

Facebook is always on the lookout for new additions on its social networking website with the company currently testing the implementation of a new 'Reply button to Comments" feature. It is only recently Facebook tried the new sound alert notification feature and one-column design that won accolades from many users and social media analysts. The latest development was first reported by Mashable website which hinted at Facebook testing a new feature that would allow users to reply to a comment directly instead of replying towards the original post.

An official named Meredith Chin of Facebook was stated as saying, “We are testing a new way to add comments to a post on Facebook." The report from Mashable also claims that users from now on would be able to reply to another comment as well as the original post. As of now, there is only a 'Like" button under the comment feature. If this rumour turns out to be true, then users will be able to see a new 'Reply" button under the comment next to the 'Like" button.

With three new features to be under experiment, Facebook seems to be all set to move ahead in terms of enhancing user experience. The sound-alert notification is a feature by which users will receive a sound alert every time someone writes on their Timeline, sends a message or invites the users to an event. However the one-column timeline design is part of Facebook"s efforts to make the posts appear in one column unlike the current format which appears in two columns, which is sometimes confusing.

The new Timeline design also features the Facebook Publishing Widget and posts appearing wider than the current Timeline. Facebook however has confirmed the testing about the new design but is tight lipped in offering any more additional information regarding the new design.
