Facebook Is Now Testing a Dislike Button

Facebook Is Now Testing a Dislike Button

The Messenger reactions feature adds to a function introduced to the website in early 2016. It will allow people to dislike any content that they don't like.

According to Refinery29, it seems that Facebook has granted its users their request after they have been asking the company for a "dislike" option for years.

After mulling over the same, they have instead arrived on the next best thing.

Arsenal Uncovered: Arsene Wenger reveals all on Alexis Sanchez and his character
Mesut Ozil certainly has not been but Arsenal's other resident superstar definitely will not feature in the rematch. While Wright questioned Wenger's decision on the day, the Frenchman had no qualms about benching his superstar.

Facebook's Reaction button for posts were announced in 2016 as an alternative to the "Like" button. Then you might have one more reason to get online and talk with your friends, family, and co-workers because Facebook has recently announced that it is testing a new series of emojis and reactions. So, you should get used to not reacting at all if a post does not inspire you, or for some reason angers you.

And despite years of rumours, we've never gotten one.

Also Reactions helps Facebook more efficiently determine and track how interesting a post is and how prominently to display it in the news feed, as opposed to just using Likes as it had done previously.

By the late 20th century, the New York Times noted , mercy releases were filling Central Park with shop-bought turtles. Omsin, a green sea turtle, is recovering in Bangkok after surgery to remove over 900 coins from her stomach on Monday.

As for when we could see this messenger dislike button, no one knows, right now the tests are at an early stage.

The proposed feature would be in addition to six reaction emojis: Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry available throughout its system. It says people often use Messenger for planning and coordination, and it's experimenting to see if a reactions are helpful for quick logistics and voting. Everyone will see the reaction below that specific message.

Specifically, Facebook dislike button will arrive into the inbox and can now be slipped into conversations. Now relaunch the Facebook app from the Home screen.

Facebook has been dodging this button since long to avoid the negativity on the newsfeed. Now relaunch Facebook in the usual way. A user has sent screencaps showing that they might be testing a reactions button in the messaging app, and it includes the much-awaited dislike button.
