Facebook Tests ‘Downvote’ Button

but only for comment moderation

Facebook downvote button

They began testing the Facebook downvote button with some users, available only in a limited number of post types. Similar to Reddits community-controlled comment system’s ranking mechanism, it’s only intended to be a method for flagging questionable comments on public posts.


Facebook described the test as brief and distanced itself from the notion that the new “downvote” action was in any way a dislike button.

“We are not testing a dislike button. We are exploring a feature for people to give us feedback about comments on public page posts,”

a spokesperson wrote,

“This is running for a small set of people in the U.S. only.”

Facebook further clarified that public page posts where the test is current running for an estimated 5-percent of Android users only, do not affect ranking and the number of downvotes are not displayed in any way.
