Facebook has changed a lot since last year. Bring some new classic, highly anticipated and good looking updates on their site. Now, this is the Christmas & New Year time. And how could facebook Santa (marky) & their trolls (developers) left behind with their Christmas present. And, as predicted, Santa arrived before time.

But what they bring is really matters.

Before I start my post. Merry Xmas to all. May Santa will pack happiness into your life. And most important …

.... Santa ain't real.

Just like it, Facebook updates are not always helpful. Or even good looking. But we have to go with the Santa stories and facebook updates.

Facebook New Updates

So let’s see whats new Facebook Santa packed for us in this rela-world post.

The new Comment & Reply Thread

Look at the snapshot below.

The textual comment not gets their own white background with border radius and excessive padding. But still, the margin between the LIKE and REPLY link and the bubble is very less. So with the image and comment bubble. It triggers my OCD please change it facebook santas.

But image bubble and the LIKE REPLY maintains a good amount of padding.

Now if you like someone comment. New facebook update will show it in the same way as Messenger. If you hover it, this will show the reactor name.

Edit Date on Post

facebook edit date feature

I am not sure whether its recent update or a little older. Because I have never seen this before. Anyway, now you can edit the post date right while making a post.

Profile pop-up

This is not something happened recently. But its worth sharing. If you’re browsing facebook group and click on any one profile.

You will not be redirected to his profile. Rather than it shows a popup with his activity on group including photo and comments. A list of things which is common with you and that person will be shown on top.

This is …. something helpful.

So, this is our Christmas present presented by the almighty Mark. If I have missed anything please hit that in the comment. Marry New Year and Happy Christmas.
