Have you ever logged onto Facebook, scrolled down your timeline and saw a status or post that made you so irate? Traditionally you only had two options, keep it moving or hit the like button, we’ll rejoice because that’s all about to change!
During a live streamed Q&A at Facebook’s headquarters, founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the social networking company is working on a dislike button.
“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. “Not every moment is a good moment if you share something that’s sad like a refugee crisis that touches you or a family member passes away, it may not be comfortable to ‘like’ that post…I do think it’s important to give people more options than liking it.”
While the dislike button is what many people have been calling for since the original “like” button made it’s debut in 2009, Zuckerberg and his team are giving users additional ways to showcase emotion.
There has been no further word on when Facebook will be launching these new features, but, once it launches…statues will never be the same again.
