Facebook has started rolling out Photo Comments feature, which will allow users to share images as comments on their posts. Presently, the feature is available for user to user interaction but will soon be an option to comment on the page posts.
Previously, users had to share an image as a comment by posting a link on their wall. The image was then pulled as a thumbnail for easy viewing. With the update, users will be able to upload their images directly from the computer. Moreover, the images will appear larger than the ones that were shared by links. There will be no need to upload an image through hosting sites like Photobucket or Imgur.
Facebook will be rolling out the feature globally for all the users. Bob Baldwin, the Facebook engineer who has helped building the feature said, "I hope this will make threads with friends more expressive and engaging".
Users will be able to upload the photo comments only on the desktop and mobile browser sites & these will be viewable only on the native applications at present.Facebook Rolls Out Photo Comments Feature Globally!,
