Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed that Facebook is finally working on a 'dislike' button.
In a Q&A session at the company's headquarters the social network's founder confirmed that Facebook had actually been working on the concept since it introduced the famous 'like' button in 2009.
"Probably hundreds of people have asked about this, and today is a special day because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it." said Zuckerberg.
While many of us probably have our own reasons for wanting the 'dislike' button, Zuckerberg was very clear about what he wanted it to be used for.
The CEO wants the button to be a mechanism for showing sympathy or empathy on a post where simply clicking 'like' can feel jarring or insensitive.r insensitive.
