Facebook today has dropped the "Comment" button when you want to write your views on someone's status on the social networking site. Couple this with the recent update to the system which means comments are displayed almost instantaneously, and it begins to feel more like a fully-featured semi-public Facebook Chat, over and above a simple commenting system.
Like Facebook Chat, you now only have to tap "Enter" to post your message, giving the conversation a better flow, as opposed to the (slightly) stilted mechanism there was before - almost what Google Wave should have been.
This comes as yet more evidence that Facebook is starting to integrate some of the feel of one of their biggest-name acquisitions, FriendFeed (which almost everyone has sadly forgotten), which the world's largest social network purchased back in August 2009. Although Friend Feed does have a "Post" button, we imagine it's clicked very little.
It's more interesting from what it means for the company's roadmap for its real-time offering, over and above the removal of a button, which I doubt many people still actively click.Tweet
