Facebook to rollout ‘Dislike’ button soon

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that his company will soon rollout the “Dislike” button which some users have been requesting for years.

“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,” Zuckerberg said during a Q&A session.

Zuckerberg explained that its new button won’t function like the ‘downvote’ found on Reddit or what some other users are expecting. Instead, it will allow users to express empathy or show understanding and support to a friend’s sad post. Zuckerberg admits that it is “surprisingly complicated” but plans to roll it out to a broader audience once the testing phase is complete.

    Kahit na sabihin nilang “empathetic ” dislike yun, gagamitin pa rin yan as a downvote.

    Pansin ko lang, mababa na ang engagement ng readers dito unlike before na madami nagko-comment. *dislike*

    The website has always been down. The site is bloated with advertisment infact there were more advertisement than articles. Even the mobile site was so laggy. New layout is confusing. The old one was way better. Very simple and easy to navigate.
