Facebook's known for testing new features with a limited group before a broader rollout, and it's latest one could have some real implications for both businesses and individual users of the social network alike. As TechCrunch reports, Facebook is now testing a new five star rating system that's prominently displayed on pages for places or businesses -- a move that would place it even more directly in competition with the likes of Yelp. As TechCrunch notes, Facebook has already been collecting star ratings from users through various means, but this is the most public use of those results to date. For its part, though, Facebook isn't offering any indication just yet as to when or if we'll see a broader rollout of the feature.
