Facebook downvote ' test '
If a message gets a lot of downvotes, offensive or misleading, is the idea. Facebook can then intervene and remove the message if needed. The downvote is first on a small scale in the United States tested.Â It is already used by sites like Reddit.
Facebook last year tested a dislike, or a thumb down. But a downvote is anything other than a dislike, stresses the platform. "We'll explore a way people can give us comments about comments on public pages", let Facebook know to press agency Bloomberg and the site The Daily Beast.
