Will Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg add the long awaited dislike button?
Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg said that people have been demanding the option to dislike a Facebook post for quite sometime now!
Well it looks like the wait might be over. Facebook had previously hesitated to add a dislike button because of worries that it would promote too much negativity.
It's not clear that it would actually be called a "dislike" button. The tool wouldn't be for expressing disdain for posts, he said. Instead, it would be for showing empathy for posts that seem inappropriate to "Like," such as news of natural disasters or loved ones dying.
"Not every moment is a good moment," he said. Facebook is working on the tool, he said, but gave no release date.
Do you think a dislike button is a good idea or will it cause more negativity on Facebook?
