The feature that enables you to see when other people have read your messages on Messenger is not yet know, even the one that enables you to comment on Facebook posts offline, Facebook has made it better as you can now see when a friend is writing a comment.
This function is quite different from the one that tells you “a friend is writing” in Messenger. Those functions have been available since the existence of the chat apps. What this functionality actually does is show you all the people that are reacting to posts in your news feed real-time.
Only just a few users have noticed this functionality on Facebook’s iOS app since early November, according to TNW, but Facebook has just recently confirmed it.
“News Feed is a place to stay up to date with your friends and family. We’ve heard from people that they want their experience on Facebook to reflect the real time conversations they have. So we are testing adding a line above the comment box of a post that indicates when a friend is typing. This is to help people have real-time conversations with friends and family,” According to Facebook confirmation statement.
Facebook is still yet to give any information on when it will make this feature available for all.
