I want to know how to comment on Mark Zuckerberg's posts. When I see his posts the comments are either from people in his personal relation or they are employees at Facebook.

However, there are some comments by people who have no connection with him but can still comment on his post. I asked one of them by message but I haven't had any reply.

I want to know how they comment if they aren't friends with him.

Public posts allow anyone to comment on them unless you have Followers enabled with the correct settings. With the correct settings, only Friends or Friends of Friends may comment on even public posts.

Mark Zuckerberg probably has Followers turned on with the Friends of Friends setting enabled for commenting access. The people you see commenting don't have to be directly connected to him.

To do this yourself, you can

  1. Click the gear icon in the top right
  2. Click Followers in the left-hand menu
  3. Click Turn On Follow if it is not already enabled
  4. Change the Follower Comments setting away from Everybody
