It’s finally here, ” Dislike ” button is here.Facebook confirmed that they are working on one of the most frequently requested feature ” Dislike ” button.
Yesterday in a public Q&A session held at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, the company’s chief executive Mark Zukerberg relieved this surprise that the company was working on a way to show empathy for victims of tragedies and other things that are inappropriate to Like, news outlets around the world sprung into action saying the masses would soon get their wish..The Dislike button has long been the most requested feature from Facebook users.
“I think people have asked about the Dislike button for many years…today is the day where I actually get to say that we’re working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it.We didn’t want to just build a Dislike button because 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.” — Mark Zuckerberg said in a public Q&A
A “dislike” button has been constantly requested by some users since the introduction of the now-iconic “like” button in 2009.And in the past, Facebook has resisted the notion of a dislike button, saying it preferred to encourage positive interactions among its 1.5 billion users.
Zuckerberg will host another townhall-style Q&A later this month. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be the guest and the two will discuss how communities can work together to address social and economic challenges.
