Social Snacks Episode 31: How to Add Facebook Reviews to A Facebook Page

Did you know that you can add Facebook reviews to a Facebook Page?

By adding Facebook reviews to your Facebook Page, not only can your customers see what others have to say about your business.

You can also use this as an opportunity to collect feedback using the testimonials that they leave on your Facebook Page to help improve your business.
Previously, if you wanted to add the star ratings and reviews to your Facebook Page, you needed to have a physical address.
While this worked for a physical brick-and-mortar business, if you had an online business, you had to use your personal address, which a lot of business owners didn't feel comfortable doing.
Fortunately, Facebook has made the process to set up star ratings and reviews on your Facebook Page even easier!

You also don't need to have a physical location to add reviews to your Page.

On this episode of Social Snacks, you will learn how to add Facebook reviews to a Facebook Page.

This way your business can begin collecting reviews and star ratings from customers.

Let's take a look at how you add reviews to your Facebook Page.

  • Thanks for writing this article. I’ve been wondering how people get reviews to their Facebook pages. Now I know!

    • You’re very welcome @virginianakitari:disqus. It’s a question we get asked a lot about from business owners.

    • Facebook used to make adding the star ratings and reviews feature only available to businesses with a physical location @virginianakitari:disqus. We’re glad to have a simplified process for any type of business to be able to add Facebook reviews to a Facebook Page. Now every business should be gathering reviews and testimonials from customers.

    I have a business page set up. Nowhere anywhere is there a tab or option for reviews (edit page info, settings). Doesn’t exist. The category is “Business Service”–there is not a “Local Business Option.” I’ve also tried this as “Local Service” and “Education.” None of these categories bring about an option to turn Reviews on/off or add a Reviews tab. What am I missing?

    • We think there is something wrong with your account. We just tested this on a handful of other Pages using the same “business service” category and we’re able to then go in to edit the page and add the reviews tab. One thing you may want to check is on the front of your page, click the … option and select edit page info. There, take a look at your location settings. You may need to turn them off and delete your address. Then logout and back in and re-enable.

    • @scottkerman:disqus, try clicking on the “add a tab” option at the bottom of the second screenshot that you shared and let us know if you can add reviews from there.

        Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, it’s not one of the options for adding a tab. I’ve tried other page templates too. No luck.
