Facebook has announced that it is rolling out an updated commenting system that it says will “improve conversations.” Beginning on Monday, the social network says that users will not only be able to reply directly to comments left on someone’s Page content, but also start threaded conversations. The release of threaded conversations has been rumored for at least the past two years but only now has become official. According to the company, this new system has undergone “months of testing” and it is hoping that it will foster more open dialogue within its community. The update will be available on desktop and there are plans to make it available in the Graph API and mobile in the future. Page administrators will have the chance to opt-in for this new service by going into their admin panel and enabling it through the Manage Permissions section.
