Oh, no. First it was the colored statuses — those awful, ugly, often-gradient-based abominations that pop up in your Facebook feed now and then — but we thought at least our Facebook comments are safe.
Well, not any more. It appears that Facebook is testing comments with colored backgrounds.
First spotted by The Next Web on Wednesday, the feature allows users to choose from a solid or gradient color for the comment’s background, just like the statuses.
The feature currently appears to only be available on mobile, and only to a small subset of users. We’ve checked a dozen or so phones here at Mashable, and no one had the feature available.
Relax. The fact that Facebook is testing this feature does not necessarily mean it’ll ever become available to everyone. We’ve asked Facebook, but have not yet heard back.
But let’s face it: It totally will become a thing. And it will be horrible. You have been warned.
