Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Facebook is going to launch Dislike button after years of requests from hundreds and thousands of people. During a meeting at company’s headquarters in New York on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg said that today is a special day because Facebook today officially wants to reveal that it is working on Dislike button, which will be squarely in comparison and contrast to the iconic “Like” button.
Answering a question about why Facebook didn’t launch Dislike button for years, Zuckerberg said that he didn’t want to turn Facebook into a Reddit-styled upvote, down vote system. But he said that now, after hundreds of thousands of requests from Facebook users around the world, the company thinks the feature must be launched.
Zuckerberg said that the Dislike button in Facebook would be to inculcate empathy because “not every moment is a good moment”.
Facebook dislike button would drastically change the Facebook’s social media architecture, interaction model, and likely to massively increase the interaction as people are more sensitive to dislikes as compared to likes.
This is a developing story and will be updated as soon as more details come.
