Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook working on ‘dislike’ button … kind of

Facebook might finally give users the ability to “dislike” things. During a question-and-answer session streamed live on Facebook on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg said the company was testing alternatives to the “Like” button.

“People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years,” Zuckerberg said at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California. “Today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it.”

It’s not clear that it would actually be called a “dislike” button. The tool wouldn’t be for expressing disdain for posts, he said. Instead, it would be for showing empathy for posts that seem inappropriate to “Like,” such as news of natural disasters or loved ones dying.

“Not every moment is a good moment,” he said. Facebook is working on the tool, he said, but gave no release date.
