I think this is good for forums, bad for FB. But, I don't have FB, only forums... so, it's a good news for me.This will simulate consensus and be very easy to game by groups and even facebook itself. Pliant opinions could get basically stickied to the top (hail empire!) and those controversial or from disliked groups be deliberately 'sunk', pressuring people to express only variations of mainstream opinions and avoid expressing themselves in any way that somehow results in anonymous mass disliking.
This wont even generate conversation. Only active discussion of arguments and events leads to collective enlightenment.
