    This is such a good idea and a long time coming! Thank you, Facebook!

    Will this include comments posted to friends photos and news feeds?

    Also does anyone know if Facebook plans to ever implement a way for us to view and possibly delete our own old comments on a former friend’s wall or photos, even if we no longer have permission to view the former friend’s profile?
