[2023] Facebook Post Comments Are Now a Pop-Out

In February 2023, Facebook rolled out new styling for viewing comments and replies on posts in a timeline.

Last Updated March 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of social media, staying updated with the latest features and changes is crucial for users and businesses alike. Facebook, one of the largest social media platforms, continues to innovate and improve the user experience on its platform. In February 2023, Facebook introduced a new way to view comments and replies on posts, significantly changing how interactions appear on a user's timeline. In this blog post, we will delve into the details of this new feature, explore how it impacts user experience, and guide Page Vault subscribers on how to adapt to this change.


The post pop-out appears when you click on either the number of comments or click on “view more comments” below the post.



Understanding Facebook’s New Comment View

Previously, when users interacted with a post on Facebook by clicking on the number of comments or selecting “view more comments,” the comments would expand directly underneath the post, allowing users to scroll through and interact with them. However, with the new update, this interaction has been transformed.

Now, when users click to view comments, a pop-out (or pop-up) overlay appears on top of the timeline, creating a more focused and immersive experience for reading and replying to comments. This change aims to streamline interactions and make it easier for users to engage with content and other users on the platform.

How the New Comment View Affects User Experience

The new comment view brings a fresh and modern look to Facebook’s user interface, aligning with contemporary design trends seen across various platforms. By isolating comments in a pop-out view, users can concentrate on interactions without the distractions of the main timeline. This focused environment is especially beneficial for posts with a large number of comments, as it allows for easier navigation and a cleaner reading experience.

Additionally, the new design is more mobile-friendly, ensuring a seamless experience for users accessing Facebook on different devices. The pop-out view adapts to different screen sizes, providing a consistent and user-friendly interface across all platforms.
