Facebook Updates Comments Plugin

Facebook is testing new features on its comments platform, which may revolutionise the way in which people interact and share information on Facebook.

According to a screenshot obtained by All Facebook, Facebook is looking to include comment voting capabilities, disclosing a commenter's place of work or location, percentage of likes a comment gets and threaded comments.

The inclusion of a commenter's location or work place will help in providing a credibility to the comment. Threaded comments on the other hand, will totally revolutionise the way discussions happen on the platform, by allowing parallel conversations on the same status, link or photo.

The voting feature on the comments will allow people to see how many found the post useful and relevant. Feedback rating will allow users to see how many positive votes their comment has received as compared to negative ones while comment count will allow users to see the number of comments they have on a thread.
