Comments now available on Friend Feed

Monday, June 15, 2009

Late last week we launched an enhancement to our Friend Feed feature. Now, when your friends set their status or reach a goal you can leave a comment, and your friend can reply with another comment. You can also receive an email notification when a friend leaves a comment on your Feed.

We hope you like this feature! Please drop a comment in this topic on our Site/Technical Help Forum if you have any questions!

    The calendar is great - and I really like being able to re-read articles and get points for doing so. It's just a little more motivation to go back and do something we all need to do.

    What happened to the feed on the Spark page? I liked the little comments saying that SP congratulated me for a lb lost, etc. Where are they now?

    I haven't figured out how to leave a feed-comment yet - several have been left for me.

I really like the feed on the right-side of my pages because it gives me incentives to go "visiting" my friends' sparkpages to leave comments on their pages or give goodies for achievements made!

Great idea!!

    Love the addition! Would only be better if our friend feed with comments was displayed somewhere more readily available. Perhaps there is a way to do that already and I just don't know how! No matter....I just click for details and there it is.

Thank you for the addition! I like it!

    leaving comments especially if it's responding to something my friends recently posted is wonderful!

getting that instant feedback from your friends and also responding to the comments via the feed instead of having to post on their sparkpage, really simplifies my life on spark.

and thanks for stamping the time the status was's good to know if it's a recent status or days old.

keep up the great work!

    Great! Thanks!!!

While we're on the topic of Friend Feed, it would be great if it were tabular or multi-paged so we can see more of our friends' activity (especially necessary w/ overly-active friends who bump out other friends' activity from my feed)

    I like being able to post the comment directly to their status or goal. It seems more direct than posting to their page in general!
I love that Spark is constantly making changes and improvements!
