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.

There are several accounts on Instagram and Twitter asking people to share Zoom meeting codes so that they can raid those video conferences or classes organised through the app, CNET reported on Friday. While Instagram is in the process of pulling down accounts that claim to offer Zoomraiding, the menace is far from over.
