    Comment on a friend’s post. In your newsfeed, you will see a list of your friends’ posts. Underneath each post will be a box with your profile picture and a text field that says “Write a comment”. Click the field to add your comment. You can tag other users in your comment just like you would a regular post.
    • You can “Like” a post to show that you think it is a good post worthy of being seen. Posts that get Liked end up at the top of your friends’ newsfeeds more often, and can help posts spread across Facebook.

    • You can link just about anything, including YouTube videos, blog articles, images, and more.
