Facebook removes photo comments feature on pages, brings them back after adding support

Actions you can do on Facebook

Update:
Faceback once again has brought back user photo comments, as of July. After adding a feature toggle switch for this in admin panel and adding API support, it looks like this feature is here to stay. I think Facebook did the right thing in this case, they reserve the right to experiment and try new things, but also do right by their customers and are reasonable with business requests. Nice work FB 🙂

Replies coming to all Facebook pages

Actions you can do on Facebook

You might have stumbled across a Facebook page that allows replies directly to user comments. Most pages currently don’t, but there are a few out there that Facebook has been testing, and many more are coming.

Facebook replies are ON

Do you think this is a good user feature, or will conversation threads get side tracked? What about businesses and special interests pages, should they adopt this new feature? Maybe it won’t matter because Facebook is going to turn this on for all pages starting July 10th? I’d be interested to know your thoughts.
