Day before yesterday, Facebook launched 5 new alternatives to Facebook’s antique “Like” button to better express our emotional reaction to a post. The reactions range from “love” to “angry”.
Even though most FB users are excited about the update, but its a true fact that 90% among them are still asking, WHERE IS THE DISLIKE Button??? Are we ever going to get the dislike button we’ve been yearning for so we can properly express our negative feelings?
Unfortunately, the answer is a huge NO, according to Facebook’s director of product design, Geoff Teehan. “This might seem like a straight forward task: Just slap a thumbs down next to the Like button and ship it. It’s not nearly that simple though,” Geoff Teehan, shared about the prospect of a “dislike” button. “People need a much higher degree of sophistication and richness in what choices we provide for their communications. Features for e.g. ‘like’ and ‘dislike’ doesn’t properly reflect how we react to the vast array of things we encounter in our real lives.”
But according to a social media business, the real reason saying about the dislike button will never fly because, when it was suggested as an alternative to the like button, it was shot down immediately as it was too negative.
Sorry to the readers of PIKAPOST. It sounds like the dislike button was dead upon arrival. The “angry” reaction will just have to do. *clicks imaginary dislike button*
