Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook is ultimately focusing on a “dislike” option. “I think 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,” Zuckerberg said at Facebook’s headquarters.
Zuckerberg stated that method wasn’t instantly designed by the social network since it did not want to be always a Reddit-design program of upvoting. “That’s not what we are here to build on this world,” Zuckerberg said.
But, Zuckerberg and Fb have recognized that individuals are not seeking to downvote one another, but with an choice to convey feelings than just liking the posts. Zuckerberg reported occasions about family unit members who’ve died such as the information concerning the current refugee disaster and sometimes even articles. Customers do not wish to “like” these products, but at this time, don’t have any additional choice. “What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment. It’s surprisingly complicated to make an interaction that will be simple,” Zuckerberg said.
Fb hopes to start it quickly, also Facebook has been focusing on it for awhile, he explained.
