By default, Facebook shows the “Most Relevant” comments for posts on the page and profiles with many followers.
As a result, you’ll likely see comments made by your friends, verified profiles and pages, and with the most likes and replies at the top.
You can turn off this comment ranking if you wish. By doing so, the comments will appear in chronological order.
Check out how to do this on your profile or page on a PC.
