Don’t like something on Facebook? Here comes a good news for you. Facebook will soon be testing on a ‘dislike’ button.
Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO, made this announcement during company’s town hall Q&A session on Tuesday where he said:
“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.”
Zuckerberg, in the past as well, wished to have a potential dislike button that could work as a “force for good,” and his Tuesday’s comment brought out that sentiment:
“We don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts. That doesn’t seem like the kind of community we want to create: You don’t want to go through the process of sharing some moment that was important to you in your day and have someone “downvote” it.
If you are sharing something that is sad … then it may not feel comfortable to like that post.”
Zuckerberg revealed nothing about the availability of dislike button on posts by pages.
Zuckerberg stated that the creation of dislike interaction has been “surprisingly complicated”, but he hopes Facebook will soon be testing it.
