Facebook is creating a ‘dislike’ button?
Yes, you heard correctly, after many years of Facebook users requesting a ‘dislike’ button on the social media website, founder Mark Zuckerburg is working on creating just that!
During a question-and-answer session streamed live on Facebook on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg said the company was testing alternatives to the “Like” button.
People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years, and probably hundreds of people have asked about this, and today is a special day because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it,
It’s not clear that it would actually be called a “dislike” button. However, it is not being used negatively to put others down or show hatred. Instead, it would be used for showing empathy for posts that seem inappropriate to “Like,” such as news of natural disasters or loved ones dying. It is being a made as an alternative for the “Like” button that is currently showing on the social media website. “Not every moment is a good moment,” he said.
