Facebook is top ranking social networking site around the world. World shares almost everything here. You can like, comment and share any content, that you are authorized to access. You like some content and may not like other content. The only way to show that you don’t like some content is to hide it from your timeline. But now you are going to have “Dislike” button on Facebook so that you can just hit Dislike if you don’t like any content.
“People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years,”
Mr Zuckerberg told the audience on Tuesday.
“I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we’re working on it and shipping it,” Zuckerberg said during a Q&A at Facebook’s headquarters, according to reports from Business Insider and CNBC.
Some users have been requesting a “Dislike” since introduction of “Like” button in 2009. After 6 years this wish is going to be fulfilled. Facebook has decided to test a “Dislike” button.
After introduction of this “Dislike” button, you will be able to see dislikes of a particular post under it just like you see likes, comments and shares under the posts.
This “Dislike” feature may be another method to rate content on Facebook. More dislikes as compared to likes will move a post to down in ranking.
This may be a good news for users, but for the people who post on Facebook (page admins etc.) for a particular audience, this button may bring some sad news for them as more dislikes on their content may drive readers away from their groups and pages.
“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.” – said Mark Zuckerberg.
“If you’re expressing something sad . . . it may not feel comfortable to ‘like’ that post, but your friends and people want to be able to express that they understand,” – said Mark Zuckerberg.
