A few days ago at a Q&A Session, Mark Zuckerberg told that Facebook will soon be giving the long awaited ‘Dislike’ button so that you can use instead of simply not liking it, because, well, sometimes you want to let someone know you dislike them.

I actually was shocked to see many blogs taking the ‘Dislike’ button seriously because it was confirmed by the CEO of Facebook himself.


But today, Mark Zuckerberg shared the video showcasing the other options apart from the ‘Like’ button.

Today we’re launching a test of Reactions — a more expressive Like button.

The Like button has been a part of Facebook for a long time. Billions of Likes are made every day, and Liking things is a simple way to express yourself.

For many years though, people have asked us to add a “dislike” button. Not every moment is a good moment, and sometimes you just want a way to express empathy. These are important moments where you need the power to share more than ever, and a Like might not be the best way to express yourself.

At a recent Townhall Q&A, I shared with our community that we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the best way to give you better options for expressing yourself, while keeping the experience simple and respectful. Today we’re starting to test this.

Reactions gives you new ways to express love, awe, humor and sadness. It’s not a dislike button, but it does give you the power to easily express sorrow and empathy — in addition to delight and warmth. You’ll be able to express these reactions by long pressing or hovering over the Like button.

We’re starting to test Reactions in Ireland and Spain and will learn from this before we bring the experience to everyone. We hope you like this – or can better express how you’re feeling!

And there is no sign of the ‘Dislike’ Button.
Here is what he has to say about it

For many years though, people have asked us to add a “dislike” button. Not every moment is a good moment, and sometimes you just want a way to express empathy. These are important moments where you need the power to share more than ever, and a Like might not be the best way to express yourself.

While some people might be disappointed by not getting a dislike button, because, none of the existing emoticons express they hate the post.

Reactions gives you new ways to express love, awe, humor and sadness. It’s not a dislike button, but it does give you the power to easily express sorrow and empathy — in addition to delight and warmth. You’ll be able to express these reactions by long pressing or hovering over the Like button.

Well, I think all the Reactions as cool and there is actually no need for a Dislike buttons. You can simply ignore the post and carry on with your own life. (or unfollow the person, so that his updates won’t be visible to you anymore).

Currently, it has been made available to only Ireland and Spain for the purpose of testing and will be rolled out to everyone eventually.

So, you are excited to use them? do you feel the reason of these ‘Reactions’ on a Facebook post?
