Facebook Ninja: The Comment Reveal

This is a cheap little trick, but I like to use the Facebook Comment Reveal to add a little excitement to my online social grind. Facebook will truncate a comment to reduce the length of the page and not bombard a casual reader with more than they care to consume.
