Sometimes comments are just as interesting and important as the publication itself. In the comments, you can often find suggestions on what to check out in a new city, give your friends some inspiration, learn some life hacks for overcoming procrastination, and sometimes just read some good jokes.

Today we are making the comments section even more enjoyable and convenient by adding comment threads. Discuss whatever you want and easily easily follow the flow of the conversation.

If you regularly interact with your followers or provide technical support, you can use the new comment section to easily set up a Q&A session for fans and clients like how Zemfira, Zhanna Badoeva, Virtus.pro, the Russia national football team, and others have done. With comment treads, its a lot more convenient to hold these sessions.

Replies in each thread will be sorted from oldest to newest. If the first comment of the thread is deleted, there wont be any unpleasant surprises. Even if comments get deleted, the rest of the conversation wont disappear along with them.

The new comments interface will be available on the desktop version of VK and in the next update for the iOS and Android apps. If you havent updated your app yet, you will see comments the way they were before. Soon, this new feature will also be available in the mobile version of VK.
