Alright now Facebook junkies, you might have noticed that there’s something different happening when you’re commenting in your friend’s status.
Previously, there was a ‘Submit‘ button which you have to click in order to post your comment.
Now the button is gone and has been replaced with a message that says ‘Press Enter to post your comment.‘.
So now you don’t have to click no buttons no more whenever you’re commenting. Just type your stuff, and press ‘Enter‘ on your keyboard. Done!
So… is this update good? Is it an improvement?
The Pros and Cons
Ok, let’s look at the obvious advantage first.
Previously, when you hit the ‘Enter‘ button on your keyboard while typing a comment, a line break will be inserted. So this update would obviously make it easier and faster for users to submit comments without them having to type and then reach for the mouse to click the ‘Submit‘ button, therefore allowing for better usability and faster commenting.
Another minor point improved is that redundant space used up by the button is now gone for good. That’s about 20 – 30 pixels vertically.
Now, for the one and only disadvantage.
You gotta hit ‘Shift + Enter’ to go to a new line.
That’s all, no big deal.
Still most people don’t like this new enhancement. Reason is they’ve been used to hitting Enter to break the line, but now Enter submits the comment straight away. A lot of folks are accidentally submitting comments unnecessarily. Some even claim nothing happens when they hit Enter.
So guys, what do YOU think about this ‘enhancement’?
By the way I saw this online, don’t think he really said that, but it sure is funny:
