Finally Facebook released new like button with emotions globally and the day has come to express dislike with sad emoji with more 4 emotions.
Facebook released these new like emoji buttons by testing for 1 year on releasing in few regions over the world. It has taken a collective feedback from different countries and decided upon the dislike option with sad emoticon with other 4 emotions .
Facebook released new like button on users demand
Facebook took this as a serious initiative because from 2 years back this social networking Facebook, hardcore users are requesting for new dislike button along with like button just to express their sad moments. As ‘Like’ option is the most effective feature in Facebook and most using feature out of all options in FB this could not be only one way to express empathy or sympathy towards sad news or national level post.
The most frequently asked Question in Facebook Q&A
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg usually conduct the Q&A sessions to collect ideas and feedback from different users over the world. This helps in brainstorming and get new requirements on demand from users. In this Q&A the most frequently asked question is about the dislike of option on Facebook to express, because Like option is not only option to express and there would be many other emotions in our life to express and that too when we are with the social media while interacting with many people, it is very important to convey our feelings clearly. Because always the sad moments are not likable.
With the same argument Mark Zuckerberg took this as challenge, to make available this option but not a dislike button. He clearly mentioned In a Q&A session that ,
Facebook built to connect people with innovative approach and every discussion on FB may not went like a forum to up vote or down vote people’s opinion, I see many people are requesting for dislike option from many years, we worked on it, we did a research on this option and finally decided to change this like option including 4 other emotions we called as reactions. We understand people intention and decided that they actually need empathy but not a dislike option. Being in social media, people come to chat and discuss with many people but not with same emotion ‘Like’ or ‘Dislike’ and not every moment we would like and every moment we ‘dislike’.
