Facebook asks users to rate things they’ve read, watched

Facebook has been pushing for users to add more content to their timelines, indicating shows they’ve watched, movies they’ve seen, and books they’ve read. This information is then added to modules on the left side of the timeline.

Now, the site wants to know how well users liked those things. Some users started seeing prompts on the sidebar of their  to rate these items on a star scale.

This appears to be a way to push more recommendations into the system. So when users type in Graph Search queries such as “books my friends have read,” or “movies my friends like,” a star rating could someday show up to these results, similar to what a user sees when they type in restaurant-related queries.
