Some really can't believe this because the biggest social network (Facebook) boss mark zuckerberg is planning to introduce the dislike button as a form of showing or expressing disinclination or objection of a post in newsfeed. Even though the facebook boss issued  statement in a video of Q&A that many users are requesting for the introduction of this new button to be called "dislike" since the launch of the "like" button in 2009.
 The facebook boss said in a Q&A interview "We've finally heard you and we're working on this and we will deliver something that meets the needs of the larger community," he said.

"People have asked about the dislike button for many years, and today is a special day because I actually get to say we are working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it."

It is unlikely that Facebook will actually term the new button as 'dislike' but will be termed in a way so it is easier to display empathy, according to the Zuckerberg.

‘Not every moment is a good moment. If you are sharing something that is sad, whether in current events like the refugee crisis or if a family member passed away, it may not be comfortable to 'like' that post," he explained.

"But your friends and people want to be able to express and understand that they relate to you, so I do think that it is important to give people more options than just 'like' as a quick way to emote and share what they are feeling on a post."

I think that's a nice idea, what do you think about it?
