Facebook Is Working on a Dislike Button, Good News or Bad News? Mark Zuckerberg finally gives in after years of user requests.

Thumbs up or thumbs down? During a town hall meeting at the Facebook headquarters, CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the company has been working on a "Dislike" button.

"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," he said.

However, he cleared that this button is more for expressing empathy rather than showing disdain. "Not every moment is a good moment," he added.

We've all encountered posts we almost "liked" but didn't because it felt inappropriate—those are awkward moments where a "dislike" button seems fitting. We just hope that this feature won't be used to actively spread negativity or give trolls a new way to harass other users.
