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?
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise

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.

It would cause a shitstorm on just about every post on Facebook.

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.
#16
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.

Cool but I'd rather have Facebook stop selling user's data to the illuminati. 360 nospoce half life 3 confirmed #doritosgate
#22
It'd be cool but if someone's posting so much shit that I dislike it then I'd just unfriend them/unfollow.

I think they're talking about its use for certain situations. Like when someone posts 'RIP Mom.' You obviously don't like the fact their Mom has died but there's no other way to interact with the status to show your support/acknowledge it, unless you comment.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'
#23
There is a dislike button. It's called "I don't want to see this". Just hide shit you don't care about. Eventually, it'll stop getting attention so they'll stop posting.

Also, not being friends with stupid people is the best prophylactic.
#24
You mean they're pondering the thing that people have been asking for since the introduction of the "Like" button? It's about time.
#25
It's a really bad idea, can't see anything good coming from it. Can't see it do anything but start arguments, stop people from posting, and be used to bully people.
#26
Honestly I don't use facebook at all, but it's a dumb idea. People who dislike things can voice it by typing it out, really it's just making it convenient for them.

so if a friend posts that a relative died do you like or dislike it


and is there a difference between flammable and inflammable

It depends on whether you liked their relative or not.

No, if you are determined enough, everything burns.

Facebook is for clickbait, stalking hotties, and causing drama as is. A dislike button seems only to be the next logical step.
