Facebook Like button is an important part of the social networking nowadays, the social giant is looking on making another rival button that has the exact opposite function of the like button which will be called "Dislike".
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, said that the feature will be coming soon during a town hall meeting on Tuesday at the company's California headquarters. However, he also said it wouldn't be a way for users to "downvote" posts and instead would let users express other emotions besides the inferred positivity of the Like button.
It's not easy to design a button like this, it is a tricky proposition and need to be carefully designed and implemented. In other hands, it will significantly increase the user's interactions with a post. Currently, if the user doesn't like a post he can ignore it by not clicking "LIKE", but after implementing this feature the same user can hit "dislike" for the same content, which means more users interactions even if it is negative.
"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, according to a CNBC report.
