Facebook is testing a feature similar to Twitter Tweets, which allows users to link new posts to previous ones and post continuously. This makes it easier for the audience to follow the content and stay up to date with related content.
This feature was first developed by Matt Navara, a social media consultant discovered And shared pictures of how it works. Now Facebook itself has confirmed that testing of this feature has begun for a small group of celebrities.
Facebook says string posts will have a button called View Post Thread that will allow the audience to easily see all the relevant content. The company has not yet specified whether the feature will be enabled for all users or not, and if so, how long we will have to wait.
String posts are very useful on platforms like Twitter where content distribution is limited by the number of characters. But there is no such restriction on Facebook, as each post can contain 63,206 characters (equivalent to about 225 tweets).
However, instead of encouraging users to write longer posts, Facebook has made it possible for users to write posts with more leeway and frequency. Of course, the ability to post posts can be useful for live reports or when new information about previous statements needs to be announced. In addition, since Facebook has begun testing this feature with celebrities, it seems that its goal is to publish news more easily than anything else.
The social network has previously had problems disseminating misleading information. So it is natural that now a feature is added to this platform so that users can provide additional information or necessary edits in the form of new posts but in connection with previous posts to their audience.
