Facebook announced today that they will be removing discussions app from facebook pages from 31st october 2011.
I received the notification message when I went to nabtron’s official facebook fan page.
The message from facebook said:

Upon going to the linked page to learn more about this news from facebook, the page said:
What happened to the Reviews and Discussions tabs on my Facebook Page?
We’ve found that the best way to encourage conversation and feedback is through posts and comments on your Wall. We’ve removed these tabs for now as we work on tools to help you moderate and filter content. Our goal is to help you can manage everything from one powerful place. Stay tuned.
On place pages with a location, fans can still write a recommendation for their friends or others from the right-column that says Recommendations.
