Internet entrepreneur and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg talked about the ‘dislike’ button that the social network is currently working on. Zuckerberg in an interview said that Facebook is going beyond the ‘Like’ button.
The CEO was talking about the ‘dislike’ button at a question and answer session held at the headquarters that was streamlined online. However, Zuckerberg said that it is not going to be so easy for the users to dislike a post and that Facebook wants to limit the use of the button for expressing sympathy when a user has posted something sad or upsetting.
The CEO informed that making the ‘dislike’ button for such a purpose was surprisingly a complicated task. Zuckerberg also said that the company will soon begin testing. The social network has been questioned about the ‘dislike’ button several times in the past, but Facebook did not the users to have an easy way to criticize a Facebook status.
Zuckerberg in the interview added that Facebook has found that the users do not intend to vote down others but would like to express support when someone has shared something sad. For instance if a user has posted about someone’s death, other users would not be comfortable to like the post so for such posts there will be the ‘dislike’ button.
