When Facebook removed the “Send” button from the commenting system, it made it so that hitting your ENTER key (or RETURN key) submitted the comment. You no longer could create paragraphs in your comments by hitting the ENTER key and it was kind of annoying. It was nice to submit without going to the mouse to click but it’s nicer when people can separate longer thoughts into discrete paragraphs.

Fortunately, there’s a simple solution. To add a line (or carriage return, if we want to get all technical) just hold Shift and hit Enter. SHIFT+ENTER will act as a carriage return and let you finally create paragraphs in the comment reply layout.

Now stop writing walls of text and separate your thoughts into paragraphs – isn’t technology grand? 🙂
