You can now “Upvote” and “Downvote” Facebook comments

While we are still asking for the “Dislike” button, Facebook introduced a new feature that allows users “Downvote” and “Upvote” comments.

The Downvote button is created for users to give negative feedback about comments on Facebook, whether the comment is offensive, misleading or off-topic. However, this will determine the visibility of the comment or the quick notification for the comment to be taken down or flagged immediately.

While the Upvote button will increase the visibility of the Facebook post comment and thereafter, make it popular and will eventually be a great comment for everyone reading the post.

See what a Facebook spokesman had to say about the new feature, “Our hope is that this feature will make it easier for us to create such spaces, by ranking the comments that readers believe deserve to rank highest, rather than the comments that get the strongest emotional reaction.”

The feature has not yet rolled out to anyone at the moment but based on some posts on Twitter, people in Australia and New Zealand revealed to have seen the new feature. Other countries will soon receive the feature as well, including Nigeria.

What do you have to say concerning this new Facebook feature to Downvote and Upvote a comment?
