Facebook has thought it important to add a “dislike” button to be used when the “like” button is inappropriate.
The ingenious Mark Zuckerberg has come up with the idea of adding a “dislike” button on Facebook. In a Question and Answer (Q&A) session held at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, the 31-year-old founder Mark Zuckerberg said the button would be a way for people to express empathy.The “dislike” button has reportedly been requested by Facebook users since 2009. In the conference, Zuckerberg disclosed to the audience that;
People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years. 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.
Nonetheless, he said that the “dislike” button will not be a mechanism with which people could “down vote” others’ posts. Rather, it will be used when clicking “like” on sad posts felt inappropriate.
Facebook, an online social networking service, is one of the biggest in the globe . The website, launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his Harvard College roommates and fellow, recorded over one billion users logged into their Facebook account on a mobile device in each of the first three months in 2014.
