Questions about the Facebook Reviews Button


Does the Facebook Reviews Button replace the Facebook Recommendations Box?

From what I can tell, the Facebook Reviews Button replaces the Facebook Recommendations Box.

Is it true that this adds the Facebook Reviews Button and Box to my Facebook Page?

Yes. You get the Facebook Reviews Button and the Facebook Reviews Box added to your Facebook Page.

Can I edit a review that I have posted on a Facebook Page?

Yes. Simply go to your review and click the X in the right corner and select edit.

Can I edit a review that someone posted on my Facebook Page?

No. You can only report a bad review that you receive.

Can I add the reviews button to my Facebook Group?

No. The Facebook Reviews Button can only be added to Facebook Pages.

Do I need a physical address to be able to add the reviews button/box?

Yes; however, if you don’t have one, you can get around this by setting your Facebook Page to a category that has a location. For example, local business.

Once you add an address, go back in and remove it. You should still have the Facebook Reviews Button.

    Hello ! I followed all the steps and still no review box?! What’s going on?!

      @c48c38fe6c60ebcbe054005686225a57:disqus, can you share a link to your Facebook Page? Sometimes it takes a little extra time to get the Facebook reviews box to show up.

  • Kylie Allan

    Yeah no box on my page either…and I followed the steps 2 days ago!

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      @kylieallan:disqus, sometimes the box doesn’t show-up immediately after you turn it on. Can you share a link to your Facebook Page?

    @xe_dap_dien:disqus, the link you provide is for a website, not a Facebook Page.

  • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

    @disqus_ehwkQrTD7C:disqus, they have removed the tab. Now users are only seeing the star rating and the reviews on the right side of their timeline.

    Hi. It’s a Facebook bug. Some page admins cannot see reviews.

    Try looking here on your mobile device.


  • Nikki Brodsky

    Am I too late to add this? I heard Facebook removed this feature. Is there anything else I can do to somehow add a spot to write reviews?

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      Not sure where you got your information from. The Facebook reviews feature is still around. The only thing that changed was the button was removed.

  • Denise

    I appreciated your tutorial – the most clear cut one I found! But the review button didn’t show up. I saw your comment about waiting and will give a day or two. Thanks!

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      Denise, thank you. Can you share a link to your Facebook Page? Sometimes it takes a little time for them to show up – there is also sometimes a bug that prevents page admins from seeing the reviews feature.


  • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz


    I took a look at your Facebook Page and you have Facebook reviews working on it. Someone also left a review for you.

    Glad you have it working and keep up the great job with your page.


  • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz


    It looks like you have Facebook reviews displaying. Sometimes it can take a few hours (or even days) to begin displaying on your page.

    If you have any other Facebook marketing related questions, feel free to contact me.

      Cool, thank you.

  • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

    @itvseo:disqus the button doesn’t display because Facebook removed it.

    To display the stars, your page needs to be a place.

  • gillian Ryan

    Hi there, i have changed over to the new layout, but my reviews from public have disappeared. do i need to add a new review box and will the old ones come back Thanks

  • Jelena

    Hi Christian, I did everything and added a postcode and town to the address, but it’s still not showing the review tab, recommendations or map. Do I perhaps need to put the street add the street address?

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      Start by entering the zip code. Facebook needs to recognize that first to display the map on your Facebook Page.

  • Toni Sanders

    Hello Christian! I have a video on Facebook and I’d like to know if there is way other than copying to put video on other sites?

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      @toni_sanders:disqus, if you’re looking to use the video on a blog, you could get the embed code for the specific video. If you’re looking at putting the video on YouTube, you would need to get the original source and upload it. If it’s someone else’s video, check their channel and see about adding it to a playlist on your channel.

    Hi Christian, is it possible to have a review button on a secret facebook group page? I’ve set one up for my online course students and think it would be nice to have a review button. Thanks in advance

  • Jackie Isard

    Hi Christian, is it possible to have a review button on a facebook secret group page please? If yes, how does one do it. Thank you in advance

    • http://www.christiankonline.com Christian Karasiewicz

      Reviews only work on Facebook Pages. You mention a secret group page – which one are you using? Facebook has Pages (likes) and Groups (become a member).
