Mark Zuckerberg says that Facebook is finally getting a ‘dislike’ button

Facebook Dislike Button Coming Soon

Over the years, Facebook users have had something to say about every change made to Facebook, from the News Feed, to privacy concerns to the endless stream of FarmVille notifications. But there’s one thing ever user can agree on: Facebook should have a ‘dislike’ button.

It seems like such an obvious addition, especially when friends and family members are looking for the right way to respond to bad news, but for years, Facebook has denied us this simple addition. On Tuesday, during a question and answer session, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the ‘dislike’ button is finally under development.

“People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years, and 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,” he said, according to CNBC.

Allowing users to express emotions other than ‘like’ has been in the works for quite a while, but Zuckerberg and his team were never interested in letting users upvote or downvote others’ posts, so they had to build a different kind of system.

“That doesn’t seem like the kind of community that we want to create: You don’t want to go through the process of sharing some moment that was important to you in your day and have someone ‘downvote’ it,” he continued. The feature was apparently “surprisingly complicated” to implement, but testing will begin soon and a wide rollout will follow.
