WHY FACEBOOK REFUSED TO INTRODUCE A DISLIKE BUTTON
Facebook the leading social media platform with over 1 billion active monthly users has introduced reactions on its website and mobile application. Reactions are more buttons on the like button which allow you to express love, laughter, surprise, sadness or anger.
Not every moment you want to share is happy. Sometimes you want to share something sad or frustrating. With the new buttons, you will be able to express your emotion based on the post you are reacting to.
The Facebook community has been asking for a dislike button for years. Instead, the social media giant played smart and introduced a set of other buttons that people will use to express empathy and make it comfortable to share a wider range of emotions.
If people were allowed to tell friends they don’t like their posts, then Facebook would have lost many users and this would have been disastrous. This goes without saying that Facebook minds it user experience and would like to retain as many people as possible.
