How to remove a bad rating on Facebook

There is no one way to remove a bad review or rating on Facebook whether you are a seller or a buyer. 

  • Try reporting the person who left the rating, but that is likely to backfire on you if Facebook deems the other party is correct. 
  • Report the review itself when you will both be dragging into a virtual courtroom equivalent of a mind-mess of a situation explaining what happened, and who was right over just one rating.
