To like a comment on Facebook, you need to navigate to the comment you want to like and tap the like button under the comment. You will get multiple reactions if you tap and hold the like option. Select your reaction, and it will automatically register your like or reaction to the comment.
Whenever you like a comment, the person who posted the comment will be notified that you liked the comment. If you’ve liked a comment by mistake, tap on the like option again to unlike the comment.

How To Dislike a Comment on Facebook?
Facebook does not have an option to dislike a comment. However, you can show your dislike through the angry emoji reaction, or you can simply ignore it.
You can also report the comment to Facebook if it is inappropriate. Other options to dislike include unfollowing the post, hiding or snoozing the post, or comments.
To show an angry reaction to the post, follow the steps below:
