In February, Facebook introduced a new feature called “Like”, which allows your friends or fans to tell you that they like the content you’re sharing.

The good thing about that button is that you can quickly let someone know that you enjoyed what he or she posted, but I know that the downside is that it creates less discussions, it’s easier to click on “Like” than expressing what you liked about the shared content with some words.

But what is truly missing is a “Don’t Like” button, I don’t know why Facebook hasn’t implemented such a feature yet.

For example, Depeche Mode has a page on Facebook. They’ve just announced the cancellation of some of their concerts in Brazil. And what’s really strange is that as of right now, 422 people “Liked” this on Facebook :

What does that mean? Are these people happy to hear that they won’t get to see the band?

Facebook tried to imitate Digg with its “Like” button, but I really think they should also add a “Don’t like” button, it will create more discussions and quickly allow posters to know the reaction of their friends/fans.

It will also help reducing the amount of shitty content that people share on Facebook 🙂

    It’s Good to see two Option one is Like and other Dislike. So, I too agree Where it should have button same as Stumble site.

    There seems to be this fear about hearing negative things these days, its like people want us all to be living in a shiny happy bubble.

    Facebook should have already added both these options. Why are they adding the one and forgetting to add the other? Not everyone likes what they see.

    I agree and vote for, in fact why not, if there is something we dislike then we should be able to express it.

    This spreads negativity doesn’t it…

    This kind of button isn’t a good idea. There will a lot of abuse.

    If there is “Yes” for some condition then, there is also “No” for that. So facebook should impliment this “Dislike” option as soon as possible.

    There are many posts which I want to dislike but can’t do so. Providing such a button will add more excitement in using facebook.
