Facebook users may soon be able to leave private comments on posts.
The social media giant is testing out the feature on its iOS app, according to iOSAppChanges.
It will mean users can leave comments without their friends seeing them and potentially becoming upset.
‘I’d like to not start political wars between my friends who are complete strangers. Please help, Facebook,’ a user wrote previously.
Another added: ‘Yes exactly!! I don’t want everyone knowing about every discussion I’m in.
‘I don’t want to cause division among my friends. If I want to share it, let that be MY choice!’
A screenshot showed users would be able to make a comment that was hidden from everyone except the person who had posted.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Facebook for a comment.
