Facebook is moving few steps out of its domain to see customers reviews on its new feature which gives an option to viewers to show there despise on post or status. The social network in February first started testing a downvote option with a small number of users. Now, Facebook is making that option more widely available.
Facebook is trying out a voting system for public posts which would allow users to “down vote” comments. After trialing the up vote/down vote buttons on a handful of users earlier this year, “the company has made the feature widely available in Australia and New Zealand for the time being, in what appears to be some sort of advanced-stage test”, BGR reports.
As part of a test in New Zealand and Australia, Facebook is testing using up votes and down votes as a signal when ranking Page post comments.
“Public discussions are an important part of Facebook, and people have told us they want more ways to make sure those discussions are constructive – even when people might disagree with each other,” a Facebook spokesperson said in an email. “Facebook is a place for free expression, but we also recognize that there should be a way for people tell us and each other which comments are most thoughtful and useful.”
