We got to chat our Tech Expert David Papp about the new DISLIKE button coming to FB.
He also dislikes it. Why? Agree?
Mark Zuckerburg announced Facebook’s new Dislike button which will be coming soon to a Facebook page near you. I understand what sparked this, it is the awkward moment you have when someone posts some bad news (natural disaster or death of a loved one) and you really don’t want to click “Like”. It just doesn’t seem right. However you want to show your support. Facebook is bringing us a Dislike button to help express empathy rather than disdain for posts.
Unfortunately I feel it could very easily backfire and get into a situation where people use it the wrong way or get the wrong meaning from it. Wouldn’t it be easier to use an emoticon such as a sad face? Not every moment is a good moment, but we don’t want to create more bad moments.
