Facebook Comment Button disappeared - replaced by Enter key

The Facebook comment in Facebook wall posts has disappeared. This is part of Facebook's innovations in faster comment post processing. Instead of pressing the "comment" button below, it was replaced by a phrase "Post Enter to post your comment".

These changes raised so many questions to some Facebook users around the globe. Some of the most common questions are:

Where can I find the comment button?

You cannot find the comment button because it has been replaced by a much easier feature - "Pressing the enter key"

How I can post comment in new line?

You can post the comment in the next line by pressing Shift + enter. Make sure that all your comments are final before pressing the enter key

Some of the users also raised their comments about this new feature. Tracy Saulters, a facebook member said:

I'm finding this very frustrating. I can't find any information on how to correct it. With mine the comment field that I'm reading from others and my own comment field runs off the page, if I try to post a comment by pressing Enter that doesn't work. For some unknown reason occassionaly it seems to reset itself and the format goes back to normal but only while I'm in facebook for that particular time, when I go in next time the comment field is off the page again. I will try Ctrl + Enter but that is a very limited solution to this problem.

The answer to these queries were explained above.

Facebook is continuously innovating its features time by time. Months from now, a picture viewer for higher resolution images was released, a synchronized font size for all Facebook texts and now, the elimination of comment button for user's posts.


  1. Stop fixing stuff that isn't broken. Now I can't comment and the enter button doesn't work. I'm not going out and buying a new computer just so I can use Facebook. Geez, can't you guys leave well enough alone?

    The comment button works for most posts but not the message board.
