Social network site behemoth Facebook is adding yet another new feature on their site which enables users to respond on a specific comment on a Facebook thread, meaning users will not only be able to like other users comments, but they can also reply to their comments directly.

According to a report, a Facebook spokesperson said "We are testing a new way to add comments to a post on Facebook. With this test you will be able to reply to another comment as well as the original post." "This is just a small test at this stage."

The new feature allows two layers of replies, which means that one can post another set of replies to an existing reply to a comment. It also shows a "Reply" option next to the "Like" button.

Facebook users will fall in love with this new feature because it would save them a lot of time by not having to tag a person in order for them to see your reply.

So far, the Philippines and Thailand already have access to the new comments feature, but it's expected that Facebook will gradually roll it out to other users in different countries as well.
