Mark Zuckerberg Co – founder and CEO of Face book announces in a Q&A at Facebook’s headquarters, on Tuesday says that the company is – at long last – responding to the desire for a “dislike” button on the popular social media site.
He said “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.” The dislike button has been a subject of much discussion over the years.
Zuckerberg said the company has been working on the feature which will allow the user to express their emotions other than likes. He said we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up and down on their post.
The CEO seems to understand that a “like” doesn’t always convey a user’s true thoughts on a post.
“What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,” Zuckerberg said, according to Business Insider.
He did not offer a timeline on when to expect the new button in action or confirm what it would be called.
