Facebook Will Add Dislike Button
“We have an idea that we’re going to be ready to test soon, and depending on how that does, we’ll roll it out more broadly,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said during a townhall Q&A at Facebook’s headquarters on Tuesday. He said making something so “simple” is surprisingly complicated, but after years of people demanding the option to “dislike” a Facebook post, the company is finally ready. The company had hesitated to launch a dislike button, but it has realized that people want to “express empathy” on posts about unpleasant news. “Not every moment is a good moment,” he added.
