Enable Facebook Comment Replies on Your Personal Profiles

Facebook is all about conversations and to remain connected with friends. People usually tag a person to refer to one's comment, but how awesome would it be if you are able to directly reply to a person's comment. When going through a post, people can easy read though the complete grouped organised conversations.

You must be aware of comment replies on various FaceBook pages or on celebs verified profile pages. With the trick given below, you can easily enable comment replies on your personal FaceBook profile. People who visit your posts / profile would have option to reply to the comments on your post which are created after enabling replies, using this trick.

Your friends and others will have the option to reply to specific comments so that their reply is threaded and grouped with other such replies. Please note mobile users don't have the option to reply to comments, hope FaceBook rolls out an update to iron that soon.

How does it work ?

The comment replies were enabled for a particular location in and around New Zealand. We override the Geo setting and makes Chrome think that we are around New Zealand and hence Facebook enables the feature for us. It is tricking Facebook, to compute that we are in that location.
