Facebook Extends Photo Comments To Pages

Almost exactly one month ago, Facebook introduced the ability for users to add photos to comments. Thursday, the social network announced that it was extending that feature to all pages globally.

A spokeswoman for Facebook said in an email announcing photo comments for pages:

First introduced last month for users, the feature allows all Facebook users and page administrators to respond to a page post or comment on a page by using a photo.

For businesses, enabling photos in comments, both on pages and elsewhere on the site, allows for conversations with customers to be more expressive and engaging than ever.

When the feature was first introduced last month, Product Engineer Bob Baldwin wrote in a Facebook post:

When I’m talking with a friend, sometimes showing a photo helps me tell a story much better than words alone. If we’re hanging out in person, I can show a photo from my phone, but on Facebook, I’d have to post a link to a photo. Now, you’ll be able to attach a photo directly when posting a comment. I hope this will make threads with friends more expressive and engaging.

Page admins: Will you begin using photo comments?
