If you’re a Facebook user, and let’s face it, most of us are Facebook users – you may have noticed something missing from every single post you read while browsing the social network: a dislike button. Oh, the “Like” button is everywhere, and most everyone knows how to use (or not to use) it, so that’s not a problem. There’s also everyone’s favorite “comment” option. But what do you do when you don’t necessarily want to “like” something or make a comment about it? Well, as of right now, there’s not much you can do, except hit that ol’ Like button. What if you don’t really “like” what’s going on – well, you just hit that button anyway. At least that’s how it is right now, anyway, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought to myself, “Why in the world did someone click like on that?” For instance, why would someone ever like the fact that someone’s family member passed away? (Yes, I know they’re not really “liking” what’s going on – there just aren’t all that many options, but it still feels a bit insensitive).
Mark Zuckerberg admitted during a town hall-ish meeting with Facebook users that he has indeed thought about putting a Dislike button alongside the Like button, but he doesn’t want to create more avenues for negativity in the online world. Will it ever happen? Who knows – we Facebook users will just have to wait and see.
