Is it possible to follow a post, or more specifically the discussion on the post, in Facebook without liking it or commenting on it?

By following, I mean receiving notifications about any added comments on the post. Not sure if it's the right term.

Commenting does seem to set a discussion as followed, and currently I think this can be cancelled for a single discussion from the notification list via the "turn off..." [x] extra menu on a notification related to that post. (Not 100% sure about this.)

Of course with Facebook what's possible today might change tomorrow without notice (which I do consider a good thing), and also during feature releases what's true for one user might not hold for another.
