Facebook is finally rolling out a dislike button. Its users have long been asking for a way to show their disapproval of news, in addition to the famous Like button. But it is not exactly as one might expect.
You now can have the ability to use a Facebook Dislike Button! Dislike to your hearts content! … When you press the dislike button we will automatically show you that you disliked the post, also it will automatically comment a dislike button on their comment section so they know that you disliked their post.
The reason Facebook decided to not make a Dislike button is the same reason why it has expanded the Like button with Reactions: the actions of liking and disliking are both too simple for the vast array of content that’s shared on Facebook every day.
