Facebook is finally announcing that it is all set to launch its ‘dislike’ button after years of requests by its social media platform users.

In a Q&A session at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park in California, Facebook founder & CEO Mark Zuckerberg said to his audience on Tuesday.

“People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years. 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.”

The button would be a way for Facebook users to express empathy, he said, adding that he did not want it to turn into a mechanism for people to “down vote” others’ posts on the social media platform.

It will be for times when clicking ‘like’ on ‘sad’ posts felt insensitive.
