Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has finally given in to user demands, announcing that it is all set to launch its â€˜dislikeâ€™ button. Ever since the now iconic â€˜Likeâ€™ button was launched on Facebook in 2009, users have requested a similar button to express dislike and disapproval on posts too â€“ should they want to. According to a BBC report, in a in a Q&A session at Facebookâ€™s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, Zuckerberg announced that â€œFacebook was very close to having it ready for user testingâ€. People have asked about the â€˜dislikeâ€™ button for many years. 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. â€“ Mark Zuckerberg to his audience on Tuesday Zuckerberg, however, is well aware of the negativity such an introduction could spawn â€“ which is why he has made it clear that he doesnâ€™t want the button to be used to â€œdown voteâ€ other peopleâ€™s posts. In fact, according to this ABPLive report, the Facebook founder feels such a button should be used when â€˜likeâ€™ isnâ€™t an option for certain posts â€“ like tragic or sad ones. In such a case, the button could be used to express empathy. The new button, he stated, was ready to be tested soon and â€œcould be rolled out broadly depending on how it doesâ€.
