Facebook to Introduce Dislike Button

Finally! I’ve always waited for this, and voila, we’re all expecting it anxiously. Mark Zuckerberg; Co-founder and CEO of Facebook, recently announced its current development to add a dislike button to Facebook. Following the high request for a dislike button from Facebook users, Mark gave a reply during a question and answer section in Menlo Park, California.

 “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”.

Precisely in 2009, users have requested for a “dislike” button. All with different motive on its usage. But don't worry, Facebook isn't going to be an online fight club where people will use the dislike button to vote down others posts

The first impression to most people about adding a "dislike" button to Facebook would be to hurt someone by voting down their post, isn't it? Mark explained that, the button is to come into place when one wants to express empathy, not every moment is a good moment.

"It doesn't make sense, whenever someone reports the death of a child and you see someone has 'liked' this, -everything is weird about that".

As of now, only Facebook has an idea of what the button will be like as it is still in its testing stage. It's still unclear whether it'll be called a "dislike". Till then, keep in touch.
