Facebook incorporates features from Twitter and other social media platforms such as Instagram which they also own. Hashtags have been said may be added to Facebook to add more value in conversations and broaden connection opportunities. This has not been launched yet but was reported here by the wall street journal.

What was incorporated just yesterday are reply buttons within the comments. This will allow for better conversations. Facebook's journalism program manager said, "You and your readers will have the ability to reply directly to comments left on your Page content and start conversation threads, which will make it easier for you to interact directly with individual readers and keep relevant conversations connected." This is a feature that Twitter already has that threads conversations. Learn how to incorporate replies and what they mean below: 
 

 

So what do you think of Facebook now imitating their competitors? It is usually the other way around, so it's interesting to watch them implement these updates. Ideally this will make the overall Facebook experience better.
