Hi @Jeanne W


No and yes - and let me clarify that.

Here's the no bit -
When you say repost - do you mean you as the business owner?
As an example - if someone leaves a 5 star review for you on Google, can you as the business owner copy the text and the star rating and post it to FB?


I would not recommend it.  Both platforms have guidelines about authenticity of reviews, and the review should be the reviewer's own experience. Copying someone else's review does not comply with those guidelines.


If the reviewer is happy to write their own review on both platforms, then you'd be OK. In that instance, if they post their review publicly on FB, it goes into the star rating calculation for FB.  


Another option is to take a screenshot of the review left on Google, and paste that into your newsfeed. That would be OK from a guidelines perspective.  


The only other consideration is the reviewer themselves.  It's possible a reviewer might not want their profile or name mentioned on another platform.  If you can, it'd be good to get their permission beforehand.
