After so many years of user’s requests for a “Dislike” button, Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has announced that they have been working on a “Dislike” button.
Mark Zuckerberg says: “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,”
“What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,”
“We need to figure out the right way to do it so it ends up being a force for good, not a force for bad,”
“Everyone feels like they can just push the Like button, and that’s an important way to sympathize or empathize with someone,” “But there are times when you may want the simplicity of a one-click response but a “like” doesn’t feel appropriate.”
The idea of a “Dislike” button is not new, but Facebook users missing this feature for years, they just want to express their emotions in more than one way, implement of “Dislike” buttons in Facebook means user can dislike thinks that they don’t like. This will have a very large effect on the companies which use Facebook for marketing and will likely have more dislike if their product or service not great.
For now, no available time-frame has announced, but Facebook says that the “Dislike” button will be tested and become available soon.
