We are not testing a dislike button. We are exploring a feature for people to give us feedback about comments on public page posts. This is running for a small set of people in the US only. - Spokesperson of the company.The ‘like’ button was introduced by the social media giant in 2009 to let users express their approval of contents published on the platform. However, the chance to express the opposite is yet to come, although a ‘dislike’ button has been on the wishlist of users worldwide for almost a decade now. In the similar context, in 2016, Facebook came up with ‘reactions,’ further letting users be expressive on posts. https://twitter.com/TaylorLorenz/status/961720791858544641 All these have been parts of user reactions over contents. The new ‘downvote’ on the other hand is rather to provide feedback to Facebook regarding whether the respective content is offensive, misleading or simply off-topic or irrelevant. Facebook further ensures that users don’t get to see how many people downvoted a comment. Speaking of new features, Facebook has also started testing on another option called ‘choose friends to tag’ in comments. This was reported by Matt Navarra, Director of Social Media at TheNextWeb on Twitter who as well provided a screenshot of the options showing. Facebook didn't disclose any further detail on this. https://twitter.com/MattNavarra/status/961876492417486848 On an inferring note, it was officially revealed that the social media company hasn’t planned to expand the ‘downvote’ feature. Share in comments with us about your opinion on the ‘downvote’ option. Would you upvote Facebook for its expansion or downvote the entire idea?
