FACEBOOK’S “DISLIKE” BUTTON IS JUST THE BEGINNING

imageMENLO PARK, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Today’s big news was about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement that the social media network is finally bringing in a ‘dislike’ button after resisting the suggestion from users for many years.

The announcement was met with mixed reaction — many approving but an equal number fearing that the new button will trigger unnecessary ‘unfriending.’

Well that, too, has been taken care of by Facebook.

Tonight, Zuckerberg also announced that Facebook will simultaneously release an “unfriend” button along with the “unlike” button.

Facebook figured out that the “unlike” button will cause a lot of ill feelings among Facebook friends who would rather unfriend those that disagree with  or criticize their posts or photos.

To make the process of unfriending easier, Facebook has decided to include an “unfriend” button next to the “like,” “dislike,”  “comment” and “share” buttons.

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.maxresdefault

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.
