Facebook is likely to have a dislike button

Posted by David Khoirul
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is thinking about the possibility for his social network service to have a dislike button. In fact, users are waiting for this button because not all posts consist of good stuff and happy news. There are times where you have to dislike a post, for instance a status update about sex and blasphemy.

Here's what Mashable (t.co/SLIKjkam6G) writes:

Facebook is considering ways users can express their feelings beyond the Like button, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said during a Q&A at the company's headquarters in Menlo Park Thursday.

"We're thinking about it," Zuckerberg said when asked whether the social network would ever add the long-requested dislike button.

He quickly clarified that such a button likely wouldn't say "dislike" on it. Instead, he said, people often want to react to posts they see on Facebook with sentiments other than "like."

"Everyone feels like they they can just push the Like button, and that's an important way to sympathize or empathize with someone," Zuckerberg told the audience. But there are times when you may want the simplicity of a one-click response but a "like" doesn't feel appropriate, he added.
