According to Business Insider, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg announced today that Facebook is working on a “Dislike” button.

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,”  Says Zuckerberg during a Q&A at Facebook’s headquarters.

The Business Insider article details how Facebook originally did not want to implement a Dislike button because it did not want to become or more likely compete with a Reddit-Style system of up voting and down voting.

 

People want options and ways to express their opinions and facebook has realized this.

What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,” Zuckerberg said.
