Facebook is Finally Working on a 'Dislike' Button
Facebook Is Finally Working on a Dislike Button
If a friend posts a sad life update to Facebook, it can put you in an awkward situation: If you "like" it, it seems like you support the sad thing happening, but sometimes you don't have the right words for a full comment. Finally, after years of demand, Facebook is finally doing something about it.
CNBC reports that Mark Zuckerberg revealed the news during a company town hall Q&A session Tuesday. "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," he said.
But it won't really be a "dislike" button. Instead, the button will be more like an "empathy" button to share support. "Not every moment is a good moment," he said, according to VentureBeat. "If you share something that's sad like a refugee crisis that touches you or a family member passes away, it may not be comfortable to like that post … I do think it's important to give people more options than liking it." Maybe it'll be a "hug" button instead?
It's going to be a tricky situation, since the company doesn't want you to hit "dislike" on anything you find objectionable, or just your wacky aunt's political opinions.
