Facebook is now experimenting with private settings that apply to individual comments. This means that you may write a reply to a thread, however most effective pre-authorised individuals can see it. Here’s what it looks like:
Clicking the padlock icon brings up the security settings. This has 4 alternatives: Friends and post owner, Friends only, Post owner and commenter only, Everyone!
