Facebook’s ‘Like’ button has been one of its biggest successes, but it is not rare to find posts which one may not actually like. In such cases users often write ‘dislike’ in comments just to express their unhappiness about the topic of the post. While the ‘Dislike’ button may still be away, users may get to see a ‘Sympathize’ button in their news feed.
According to the reports, Facebook is pondering on introducing a ‘Sympathize button’. The button created by an employee during Facebook hackathon held “a little while back” reportedly became an instant hit.
This button would appear when users post a gloomy update (for example Sad or Depressed from Facebook’s list of feelings) in place of ‘Like’.
