How to set who can reply or comment on your public posts on Facebook

Facebook gives their users the ability to set who can reply to your public posts. This is good if you have a lot of subscribers and you want to share but you do not want your subscribes to be able to comment on your posts. In-fact this is a option being used by a couple of famous bloggers on Facebook. You can subscribe to them but cannot reply or comment on their posts. This can also be done with your friends and friends of friends. So when you update your Facebook status with a public post you can choose to have your friends comment on your posts. You can also allow friends of friends to be able to comment on your posts. These privacy options will need to be chosen by you and once set you can control who has the right or ability to reply or comment on your public posts.  If you choose public then anyone can comment on your posts - this will include public + subscribers.
