Facebook To Add A Dislike Button

After many long years of Facebook followers suggesting a ‘dislike’ button would be a handy tool to show their disgust at some of the very worst types of status updates, the Facebook Gods many finally be giving in to demand.

Mark Zuckerburg, CEO of the social media giant, held a live question-and-answer session, streamed on Facebook on Tuesday.  During the session he said that the company was testing alternatives to the ‘Like’ button.

“People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years and today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it.”

It may or not be an actual ‘dislike’ button that could potentially cause friction amongst the social media masses. Such a button may not be well received by users not liking such obvious disdain being shown so publicly.  But a tool for showing empathy for certain posts, such as news of a disaster or personal loss, looks like it may finally be in the offing.

“Not every moment is a good moment,” he said, but has previously dismissed the idea of a ‘dislike’ button saying “Some people have asked for a dislike button because they want to be able to say ‘that thing isn’t good,’ and we’re not going to do that,” Zuckerberg said. “I don’t think that’s socially very valuable, or great for the community.”

No doubt, the Facebook community will no doubt wait patiently for further updates, and in the meantime, continue to click ‘like’ on all upcoming news from Facebook itself.

I've been working with Green Tornado for just over 5 years. In that time they have designed countless flyers, posters, product labelling, newsletters and other promotional stuff that my business required. Most importantly they understand my brands' 'vision' - possibly better than I do myself! All the work produced is fantastic and of very good quality. Over the years I've had some pretty tight deadlines but they've never been missed. Would definitely recommend!

We were a start up company when we started to work with GT and I have to say they have been so tolerant and helpful From us not actually knowing what we needed to not knowing what we could actually afford the team were supportive and understanding. They have helped us at short notice , which , to be honest must drive them mad because we still do it now years down the line , yet time and time again they deliver . I send over ideas and they turn that into an amazing finished product , they have , without doubt , helped our company grow . I have no hesitation at all in recommending them and I will never be going anywhere else , they know our company and what we want to portray and have taken the time and made the effort to get to know exactly what we need and want - you can’t put a price on that !
