Facebook's constant efforts to enhance user engagement have led to the introduction of various new features.

One such feature is @highlight Facebook, which enables users to draw attention to a particular post in their comments. By using this feature, users can easily point out an interesting or significant post or spark a discussion on a specific topic.

You might be wondering - what exactly is @highlight Facebook? Well, it's a simple yet effective way to highlight a Facebook post within your comments.

How to use the @highlight Facebook feature?

When you want to highlight a post, start by navigating to the post itself. Once you're there, click the "Comment" button as you normally would.

In the comment box, type "@highlight" followed by a space. A drop down menu will appear with a list of suggested posts that you can choose from.

Select the post you want to highlight from this list, and it will be automatically inserted into your comment.

Finally, click the "Post" button to publish your comment with the highlighted post.
