Facebook Could be Closer to Rolling Out Upvote and Downvote Options for Comments

facebook could be closer to rolling out upvote and downvote options for comments

Last November, I noted that Reddit must logically be on Facebook’s radar as a potential acquisition target. While The Social Network has repeatedly tried, and failed, to build an algorithm-defined system to uncover more engaging content from outside people's established networks, thereby keep users active for longer, Reddit, via the use of human curation, has actually built a much better system, which very effectively uncovers the best the platform has to offer, all via volunteer moderators. And the platform’s engagement rates are higher as a result.
