New York:  Facebook users are bound to like the new “Dislike” button! The popular social networking site has finally listened to its nearly 1.5 billion users. According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, a “Dislike” button is soon coming to Facebook that will let you reveal true feelings on your friends’ wall or respond to anti-humanity posts.

mark-zuckerbergDuring a question-answer session at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Caifornia, on Tuesday, Zuckerberg said: “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”.

“Facebook realised people want to express emotions other than positivity, especially around posts about sensitive topics,” he told the audience.

The “Dislike” button will make it easier for Facebook users to show interest in a post or story that would be awkward to “Like,” Time reported.

He, however, did not explain exactly how a dislike button would work. “Dislike” button may be about opening up an avenue for users to interact with interesting content that would be awkward to do anything with inside Facebook’s current framework.

“If you are expressing something sad… it may not feel comfortable to ‘like’ that post, but your friends and people want to be able to express that they understand,” Zuckerberg commented.

Zuckerberg first mentioned the possibility of a new button during a Town Hall Q&A last year.

A meeting between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and members of the European Parliament (EP) over the social network’s use of personal data will be webstreamed, the Parliament’s President said on Monday.

The meeting, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, would be streamed over the Internet after Zuckerberg agreed to it, EP President Antonio Tajani said on Twitter.

“I am glad to announce that he has accepted this new request. Great news for EU citizens… I thank him for the respect shown towards EP,” Tajani said.

The meeting would take place a month-and-a-half after Zuckerberg testified before the US Congress over an alleged massive personal data leak to UK-based firm Cambridge Analytica.
