How to disable Facebook’s new Pop-Up Posts Tab Option


Recently, Facebook started testing a new feature to improve the news feed experience. Now it is testing pop-up posts with selected group of users. As the test group is large, few of you might see this on your news feed.

Once you get this option, you will see Facebook posts opening in a chat like pop-up in desktop browser when you have any new comment on the post. So, you can directly reply to the comment without leaving your current position very similar to chat replies.

You can also open a post manually as pop-up post. For this, go to post, click on the down arrow icon at right and select “Show in Tab” option.

Final Words

I personally like this feature as it improves the productivity. I can quickly reply to comment on a post while browsing the Facebook to see other news feed. IN this way, I will not have to leave the current thing I am doing just to reply. Most of the people open the post in new tab for replying to all incoming comments. But this pop-up post is better option for this.
