MENLO PARK, California (The Adobo Chronicles®) – During a Q&A session at Facebook headquarters Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg announced that a “dislike” button is finally coming to the social-media network.
“I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we’re working on it and shipping it,” he said.
Zuckerberg said they were hesitant to design it right away because he didn’t want Facebook to turn into Reddit.
The Adobo Chronicles® , however, learned that there is a certain limitation on the use of the “dislike” button.
Knowledgeable sources at Facebook said that users can only use one “dislike” for every ten “likes.” In other words, a user is prevented from using the “dislike” button as a “weapon” for a personal grudge or to silence political or ideological opponents.
So, go ahead and “dislike” this news story. But that would mean your next “dislike” button won’t be available to you until you have “liked” ten succeeding posts.
Zuckerberg has indeed made sure that Facebook does not turn into Reddit.
Social media analysts are predicting that when the new “dislike” button rolls out, more people could be using the “unfriend” button.
