After years of pressure from users, Facebook has now started the process of making a dislike button for those who do not want to press ''like''.
- People have asked for the "dislike" button for years. Today is the day when I can actually say that we are now working on it, says Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
It was during a live question-and-answer session on Facebook that Zuckerberg confirmed this.
The statement got those most eager to press "dislike" on what they read, to press "like" on his initiative.
Much remains before the new feature is in place. It is not even certain if the button will be called "dislike".
Zuckerberg says that the function is unlikely to be activated to express contempt for messages people put out. It would be more appropriate to facilitate the function where one can empathize in cases where it would have been indecent to press 'like', for example on news of natural disasters or if someone you hold dear have passed away.
- Not every moment is a fine moment, says Zuckerberg, who with the initiative on Tuesday, have changed his view on the matter.
Last December he rejected the idea of a counterpart to the "like" button, something many disliked.
