In an effort to clean up their act, Facebook took a sheet from Reddit's book and started by testing the up and down voting buttons for comments.
While the test was conducted in the United States, Facebook is now deploying the new tool for more users. Going through the tweets published since the start of its launch over the weekend, it seems that most users are in Australia and New Zealand.
Does Facebook now have some kind of vote / vote system in favor? I've never seen this before ? pic.twitter.com/ysscCMq2MiApril 29, 2018
Power for people
The new tool has been used for comments on public publications and, insists Facebook, is not similar to Approval options with thumbs up and thumbs down for "like" or "do not like" posts.
Hmmmm. I'm not sure I like the Upvote and Downvote function of Facebook. Time will tell, I suppose. pic.twitter.com/hxvjW7HaTXAbril 29, 2018
Facebook wants its users to use the new tool to reject the "bad comments" that have "bad intentions or [falta de respeto] [are]", but it does not seem to be something for prevent users from using the downvote button in a similar way to the antipathy option.
ok, seriously, the comments of Facebook have a system of votes for / against now my brain hurts April 29, 2018
Users, however, it seems that they can not decide on the new tool While Facebook may be doing everything possible to recover its tarnished reputation, it may take time for the new system to work as efficiently as it does on Reddit.
