    Only way is to use IE and access Facebook through there. The FB app sucks, tbh.

    Hmmm. I don't have WP8 yet but on the WP7 version of the Facebook app there is a "Like" link you can tap right under each comment made in a post. You can tap it again if you want to take your "Like" back.

    You have to open the post by pressing the little chat bubble icon and at the bottom there is a like button. You get used to it after a couple times.

    There's no way to do it that I've found. It's kind of a glaringly missing feature in the FB app. I swear the FB app was written by people that rarely, if ever, use FB.

    That's how you "like" the post, not a comment on a post. There's no way to do what the OP was askng.

    Are we using the same FB app? I can like comments by hitting the "like" button right under the comment. How is it so hard?

    I was thinking the same thing. I can't like comments via the People Hub/Me Tile...but I can from the FB App for sure.

    Perhaps the OP is referring to the integrated Facebook and not the actual app???

    Yeah, that's what I meant also. It's too early in the AM for me to post competently.

    Perhaps, but only the OP knows for sure. Never heard it referred to it in that manner. Bottom line: it's not exactly what you'd call an "app."

    The integrated Fb is limited in its own ways. Get FB app from market place for liking comments.

    Do you mean the intergrated Facebook stuff? Not the stand alone Facebook app?

    For the intergrated stuff, no, you can not like comments. You have to use the Facebook app for that, or the website.

    The FB app, and the integrated app sucks balls in many ways. It's as if the developers want to play with our emotions. lol

    Yes, that's what I meant by the "stock app". Maybe it is not considered an "app", sorry for the bad terminology... Anyways, as I understand it, there is no way to like a comment on a posting through that whatchamacallit. I sure thought there were, only that I couldn't find it. Thanks all.

    OK, I DL'd the FB app from teh store, and it looks pretty good.

    I cannot understand though... WP8 ships with a crappy FB-integration app, what I called the "stock app", and then there exists a useful free FB-app. Both are made by MS! Why don't they ship the phone with the useful FB-app directly? New user are going to be put off when trying the phone out teh first time, looking at the stock FB-app. This happened to me... how was I to know that MS had another FB-app available that is much better than the stock one? I don't get it, to me this is simply bad marketing...

    MS has gotten in trouble before with bundling apps with their OS.

    So... using the built-in FB integration, you can't "like" comments, only posts. Using the FB app from the Store, however, you can; there's a little "like" word under each comment which you can tap.

    While I had dropped the FB app for the built-in integration, it looks like I'm going to switch back to the FB app with today's update. It's much faster and is better looking than either iOS's or Android's FB app.
