Facebook Adds Videos, Photos & Link Previews to Comments

Facebook has squeezed their comments feature by adding video, photo and website previews into comments.

Now, if you include a URL in a Facebook comment, you’ll be able to preview content from the web page that URL links to. Unlike wall and news feed posts, the content preview won’t appear until after the URL is published, but comment authors are then given the option to remove the preview.

Suppose 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.

The change has made commenting a richer experience and makes your wall much lovelier.
