The feature seems restricted to public posts. For the ones US customers who have the feature to be had, they are able to see that each remark inside the thread could have an upvote and downvote choice with more than a few attached to expose the number of votes.

Facebook is introducing this feature along with the following message:
“Support comments that are thoughtful, and demote ones that are uncivil or irrelevant.”
Though the feature turned into being examined in the US, different regions inclusive of Australia and New Zealand have also witnessed wider downvote testing since the month of April this year and some selected users in the United States were given get entry to transient downvote function earlier this year in February.
The overseas tests included the prompt stating “Press the down arrow if a comment has bad intentions or is disrespectful. It’s still okay to disagree in a respectful way” when the downvote button is clicked.
It will be interesting to know that how far Facebook goes to ensure the credibility of this new feature.
