Facebook is changing the way people will review your business page.

The social media giant is  rolling out a plan to all business pages that would replace the rating system to recommendations in an attempt to generate more authentic information about the quality of business you operate.

"Local business pages have always features ratings and reviews, and now we are updating reviews to recommendations," the social media giant said in a statement. "Customers can share richer feedback about your business to help you be more visible in your local community and attract more customers."

Reviews have always been an important part of  Facebook business pages.  About 2/3 of Facebook users look at them before they decide whether to visit a business or order from it online.
