Facebook provides several configuration options to enable others to comment on your photos and posts. First, you need to make sure that friends or others can see your posts to begin with by changing your privacy settings to allow them to view your posts. Once your posts are visible, people can comment as well, assuming you have also set the option to allow people to post on your timeline. Enabling photo comments requires you to modify some of your general settings in the Timeline and Tagging section of Facebook.
