Facebook has launched a new “Like” feature that allows users to express approval for comments on posts in the same way as they do on the post itself. According to the company blog post, the “Like” feature and the ability to comment on News Feed stories are the two most heavily-used features on the site. Facebook decided to combine these features.
“Whether it’s a witty remark, a great point in a discussion or a helpful answer to someone’s question, clicking the ‘Like’ button within comments now makes it simple to show your appreciation for all types of content on Facebook,” wrote Facebook’s Tom Whitnah.
Facebook will be rolling out the new feature gradually, reminding users that if they don’t see the button yet, they will soon.
