Social networking giant Facebook is mulling over adding a “dislike” option for those posts that the users don’t like.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said that his site is “thinking about” how to implement a way to dislike posts and photos for the users.
While responding to a Q&A session in California, Zuckerberg said that the site is planning to introduce the ‘dislike’ button as this was one of the most requested features from the users to the social network.
He, however, stressed that while thinking of such a feature they will make sure that it does not become a way to demean people’s posts.
While addressing an audience at Facebook’s headquarters, Zuckerberg said, “One of things we’ve thought about for quite a while is what’s the right way to make it so that people can easily express a broader range of emotions.”
“A lot of times people share things on Facebook that are sad moments in their lives. Often people tell us that they don’t feel comfortable pressing ‘like’ because ‘like’ isn’t the appropriate sentiment,” he stressed.
About 4.5 billion ‘likes’ are generated every day, according to Facebook’s figures. And the social network feels the users are also interested in expressing their dislikes.
