Facebook Is Getting a ‘Dislike’ Button

We’ve been asking for it for years, and now we’re finally getting it.

At a town hall meeting Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will soon have a “dislike” button. 

Business Insider reports that Zuckerberg didn’t initially want it as a part of Facebook social media experience because he feared it would lead to a Reddit-like “up vote/down vote” type of situation.

But, the social media kingpin has changed his mind, realizing that people want it not to vote, but to show empathy. Zuckerberg said, “Not every moment is a good moment.”

The feature should roll out to Facebook users soon, and now you won’t have to feel awkward when your casual acquaintance’s grandma dies and you want to show your support without getting five billion notifications for the next few days.
