Photos Can Now Be Added To Facebook Comments

Facebook introduced the ability for users to add photos to comments, Product Engineer Bob Baldwin announced in a post on his Timeline.

Baldwin called the new feature “the most exciting photos feature I’ve shipped to date,” and he said it originated at a hackathon with fellow Facebook engineers Eric Faller, Zizhuang Yang, Ashwin Bharambe, Brandon Souba, and Alex Madjar, with pre-launch help from Aditya Koolwal, Dan Muriello, Eugene Bogatov, and Summit Shrestha.

He wrote in his 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.

Readers: Will you play around with adding photos to your comments?
