Outstandingly missing from the new emoticons is an “dislike’ button, something looked for quite a long time by Facebook users, however which has been precluded by the California organization to maintain a strategic distance from a torrent of scornful expressions.
“I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the right way to do this with our team. One of my goals was to make it as simple as pressing and holding the Like button,” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said on his page, immediately drawing tens of thousands of “like,” “love” and other expressions.
“Not every moment you want to share is happy. Sometimes you want to share something sad or frustrating. Our community has been asking for a dislike button for years but not because people want to tell friends they don’t like their posts. People wanted to express empathy and make it comfortable to share a wider range of emotions.”
