Back in september of last year, I lamented the lack of what I view as a crucial admin tool on Facebook; the option to close a thread for comments while leaving the original post there for everyone to read. Since then, this is something I have found myself wanting time and again, as I have been forced to delete entire threads that, though interesting, simply created too much of a heated debate.
Now, I don’t know when it changed, but I noticed a new option in the dropdown menu last week; “Turn off commenting”, as seen on the right here.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I am very happy to see this change come about. It means that we can keep good posts without dealing with the sometime horrible comments that follow.
