Facebook's New Private Comment Feature Makes It Dangerously Easy To Cheat

Cheaters of the world, UNITE.

Facebook is reportedly testing a new feature that'll make it super easy to be a slimy human by chatting up your crush without your partner knowing.

According to iOSAppChanges, the firm is working on a way to post private comments under people's posts.

A screenshot of how it would work was posted on Twitter.

One picture shows a comment under a post with the words "private comment" and the phrase "this comment is hidden from everyone else" with a padlock symbol.

It means you can be super douchey and not worry about the Fun Police getting all up in your grill (because don't you just hate it when that happens?).

News around the feature suggests the comments can only be seen by the person who posted -- they will not be public for anyone to see.

I'm all for relinquishing my verbal censor, but what about all those oily snakes? It's going to be too tempting for cheaters to chat up others behind their BFs' or GFs' backs.

That just doesn't sit right with me, know what I mean?
