Facebook now pondering "dislike" button

Speaking at a Q&A session in California, he said it wasone of the most requested features the social network receives from its users.

He said the site would need to find a way to make sure it did not become a way to demean people's posts.


What does the Pit think.

I would actually like a "dislike" button on Facebook..Though it would probably start more arguments than anything else to begin with.

And, the international self esteem level would so skyrocket.

Thoughts?

I'd prefer a button that would allow me to send someone round to the user and slap them in the chops.

Of course, I'd have an opt-out on the being slapped bit, or my face(which some might charitably say already bears some resemblance to an arse) would look like a skelpt arse in under 10 minutes.

the main population of facebook is 40 year olds who get assblasted over opposing political views so I don't see the problem

I think the big question is which is better out of the other FB alternatives to go to, Ello.co, Seen.is, Tsu.co etc

it's a bad idea indeed. i guess they do it becaus it's weird to 'like' bad news such as a funeral or something. but disliking such post seems really impersonal to me.

I think FB should have a dislike button for pages, but not for individual posts.

No, that's not the main population at all. Just one demographic. Get with it, canti.

It's a terrible idea. It's not just some anonymous internet forum, and many people have really fragile egos.

I'd like it though because I could use it to tell all my relatives + some of my peers that they are idiots for posting their dumb shit (which falls into three categories: racist, classist, or overly patriotic- or any combination) without actually having to call them idiots.

But I wouldn't do it because this is true, and because people take it way too seriously.

Yeah but it could just be more legitimate cyberbullying.

Like some young teenager who's just using social media (idk I guess people use this stuff from a really young age now, though probably more interesting outlets than facebook) might be depressed and harassed in real life and there could suddenly be 100 dislikes on a normal picture or something, which while small just makes it worse.
