Facebook Adds Video, Photo & More To Make Commenting More Dynamic: mashable.com/2011/07/21/facebook-comments
Facebook has made commenting a richer experience by adding video, photo and website info. It’s a small change, but a rather cosmetic one.
This would have been particularly useful for me the other day. A friend had posted something on Facebook about Weezer, and I felt the urge to tell that friend that the band was hosting a cruise in January. So I commented with a link to a story about the event. The result? An ugly, sprawling URL marring her wall.
This week though, Facebook made a small tweak to cure this. Now, when you comment on a post with a URL, Facebook will pull in a video player, a thumbnail or an overview of the website that you’re linking to. You can also choose to nix the preview.
