Facebook users have been asking for a while now if they will ever get to see other buttons instead of the normal ‘Like’ such as the ‘Dislike’. To put this one to rest the dislike button is not coming, but ‘Empathy’ could be.
Facebook has decided they want to look into another button and like is not what they are about, its not nice when you are feeling down or if a loved one passes away, or something has happened that has made you sad. Using the like button is not really nice to use and disliking someone’s post that means something to them is not nice either, but an empathy button seems more practical and useful.
Mark Zuckerberg has finally given a solid answer to the dislike button at the Q&A at Facebook’s headquarters, its NOT coming. If something is sad or daunting it’s hard to hit the like, and disliking is not the right one either. But like and empathy seems to be the answer even though Zuckerberg didn’t give the real name of the button, he just said we should show empathy.
The Facebook button is ready to test soon, and depending on how it does they will roll it out.
Ok, so a new Empathy Facebook button could be tested, but do you still want the Facebook dislike button? For more in-depth information please do visit Tech Crunch as they have more information on this.
