Facebook Now Testing 'Ranked Comments' on Business Pages

Facebook Now Testing 'Ranked Comments' on Business Pages | Nonprofits & Social Media | Scoop.it

It feels like it's been a while since Facebook launched a new feature or feature test. And by a while I mean, like, a couple of weeks.

So, what's this new feature in beta? Ranked Comments. Sounds intriguing, eh? We learned about it from the fine folks at AllFacebook, and they're aptly pointing out its similarities to Reddit -- so if you've ever up-voted or down-voted content on their site, you might have an idea what this feature is like.
