YouTube Comment Threading

YouTube has a new option that lets you group comments and their replies. It’s called “sort by thread” and it’s only available if you click “see all” next to the number of comments. The option is useful if you read a reply to a comment, but you can’t find the initial comment. Here’s an example.

Sterling, a reader who noticed this feature, says that “the comments on YouTube are a mess, so confusing, but it looks like YouTube is testing threaded comments on the site. I wish this feature was in the watchpage, but it only shows up in the All comments page.”


{ Thanks, Sterling. }
