Notes/Bugs/Gotchas

Are the feed comments always contain 2 comments only?

(from the comments on the official documentation)

That is the summary of comment, just like facebook default, only 2 shows up unless you "read more" or "view all"... the graph call for "view all comments" is get the post ID of that post and append "/comment"...
