Facebook to launch a ‘dislike’ button

Facebook is testing a ‘dislike’ button for Messenger on its platform. Even though the feature currently exists on Facebook News Feed and it’s Reaction tab, the social media site is now testing it on Messenger button.

The Reactions tab on News Feed was launched last year in February. Facebook Reactions allows users to react to posts on their newsfeed by choosing among six options: love, laughter, shock, sadness, and anger. One can hover around these options and choose the one liked most.

Reportedly seen by a few users, Facebook Messenger is now equipped with the Reactions tab. While this may not come as big news, the highlight here is that the Reactions tab for Facebook Messenger has a dislike button.

What you need to know about the ‘dislike’ feature:

  • The Reactions tab is available for all the messages shared on chats.
  • One can see the option of dislike by clicking on the emoji icon
  • The expressions included in the Reactions tab are love, laughter, shock or surprise, sadness, anger, like and the highly demanded dislike.
  • Since this is still in the testing stage, we cannot confirm if Facebook will eventually roll it out to all its users.
