Facebook testing real Time Comments for Status Updates

January 23, 2011

If you are a Facebook lover like me, then you might have seen some changes on the commenting system these days. Facebook is testing real time comments on the status updates of a person. I am referring this as testing because there has been no such update on the Facebook blog.

Two days before when I updated my status with a message testing. I was wondering if this is really working. Well, many of my friends commented on it within seconds and that was clearly visible. By saying real time I mean that in order to see the comments you don’t need to refresh your Facebook page, the comments appear any ways.

As you can see in the image above the comments are all under seconds difference. :) This will allow more people to communicate through the status comments and well this will be fast!

What do you think about this? Did you also experience it and how was it? Do share your views with me.

    I think it is not a new thing on Facebook. This was done before also as I was commenting on my friends’ status so it is not new for me.

    Okay , well for me its new. That is why i said testing because it is available for some and not available for others. You may have got that feature before me :)

    Doesn’t surprise me to see this, more and more things are turning to real time, which is great to see! I love getting the “notifications” without even having to hit the F5 key.
