Facebook Enables Enter Key For Comments Posting

Facebook appears to have removed the blue button for posting comments on items in the news feed and elsewhere on the site, prompting people to hit the enter key instead.

Now, if you click on the linked word comment, a window appears with grey text underneath indicating that hitting enter will post a comment.

We don’t know yet whether this is a test or a full rollout, but suspect it could be the latter based on what we’re seeing and hearing from readers.

It’s possible to cause some confusion for people who want to post comments broken into multiple paragraphs — however, that can be achieved by holding down the shift key when hitting enter.

Have you seen this new comment window?
