Last year, Facebook changed star ratings to “recommendations” for consumer feedback to describe their experience. Facebook stated that they hoped this change will expand review content to provide better information for the reader. In the business world, this may provide relief to owners who are often stressed out when a negative review affects their 5 star rating. It is still important to note that it is best practice to ask and encourage your clientele for reviews of your products and/or services. Consumers prefer to peruse many reviews on various social media channels with consistent, positive messaging. This helps potential new customers or patients to trust the reviews and make a decision to contact you; a powerful endorsement!
