While one upcoming Facebook feature has been a long requested one, it’s being cautiously rolled out.
Users have been asking for a dislike button for years, but the highly divisive climate on social media is giving Mark Zuckerberg and crew pause. They don’t want to make the climate more hostile than it is, so “dislke” will be tested on Messenger.
That’s not all Facebook is testing. The billion plus users will have the option of using a thumbs-down emoji on Messenger chats. They'll also be able to use other emoji responses, including thumbs-up for "like," heart-eyes for "love," and open-mouth for "wow."
Not everyone has the new reaction feature, but you will soon.
