Facebook said to be placing ratings higher up on Pages

The company is currently testing placing its five-star rating more prominently under a business' name on Pages, according to a TechCrunch report.

Facebook is considering placing a company's five-star rating in a prominent place on Pages.

The social network is quietly testing placing the rating under the company's name on a business page, TechCrunch reported on Thursday. The startup blog was tipped off to the change by an unidentified source and published an image showing the feature in action.

Facebook has been allowing users to rate businesses on a five-star scale for quite some time. Those ratings, however, weren't displayed so prominently. If the changes reportedly being tested by Facebook are rolled out globally, it could put a the community's opinions on a respective company front and center.

CNET has contacted Facebook for comment on the TechCrunch report. We will update this story when we have more information.
