Ever since Netflix dropped the 5-star ratings, user reviews have taken a back-step on the Netflix website. Now Netflix have announced that they are removing the user reviews from 30th July as their usage has declined. This does make sense as the thumbs up/down system was designed to be quick and easy; writing a review doesn’t fit with the ‘quick and easy’ approach so people were less inclined to do it. Also, it was rather difficult to find where to write a review on the website…
You contributed a review on Netflix within the last year. We wanted to let you know that this feature will be retired on 14th August due to declining usage.
We appreciate you taking time to write a review. All of your reviews will be available at netflix.com/reviews until 14th August.
