Facebook Dislike Button Coming Soon


Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Facebook is adding a “Dislike” button to its social network.

In a Q&A session held at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, Mark Zuckerberg, 31, said the button would be a way for people to express empathy.

The Facebook founder said the social network was “very close” to having it ready for user testing.Facebook adds Dislike button

A “Dislike” button has been constantly requested by some users since the introduction of the now-iconic “Like” button in 2009.

“People have asked about the <<Dislike>> button for many years,” Mark Zuckerberg told the audience on September 15.

“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.”

However, Mark Zuckerberg went on to say he did not want the “Dislike” button to be a mechanism with which people could “down vote” others’ posts.

Instead, it will be for times when clicking “Like” on “Sad” posts felt insensitive.
