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.



During 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.

Clinicians must encourage their patients to report any changes to periods or unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination.

Some women say they experienced period changes after getting a Covid-19 vaccination. While the reported changes are short-lived, research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the success of the vaccination programme, according to an editorial published in The BMJ.

"A link between menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination is plausible and should be investigated," wrote Dr Victoria Male, a reproductive specialist at Imperial College London, in the editorial. Reports of menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination have been made for both mRNA and adenovirus-vectored vaccines, she added, suggesting that, if there is a connection, it is likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination, rather than to a specific vaccine component, she said.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.
