'Two Thumbs Up' button on Netflix

"Members have never had as many great entertainment options as they have right now. Being able to find the shows and movies that you're going to love is really important. We want to continue to make Netflix the place where it's easiest to choose something to watch," Christine Doig-Cardet, director of product innovation and personalization experiences at Netflix, told The Verge. He adds, "We hope to end choice fatigue with new features that we're adding this year. It's a huge part of where we want to invest - providing those mechanisms to give more of the control back to the user to help tailor their experience to their personal taste."

Netflix had previously offered a rating system allowing the users to rate on a scale of one to five stars, which was replaced in 2017 for the 'Thumbs Up' and 'Thumbs Down' set-up. The new 'Two Thumbs Up' button will appear next to the 'Thumbs Up' and 'Thumbs Down' buttons on Netflix's web, TV, Android, and iOS interfaces. Advertisement
