Facebook lovers rejoice! The CEO of the social media giant Mark Zuckerberg has finally announced that it is working to introduce the much-wanted and the much-needed “dislike” button.

After what  seemed like an eternity, Zuckerberg has answered the pleas of millions of FB users who always dreamt of expressing their disdain on the social networking website via a dislike option.

“People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years, and probably hundreds of people have asked about this, and today is a special day because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it and are very close to shipping a test of it,” said the entrepreneur during a meeting at FB’s California headquarters.

However, Mark revealed that FB’s plan is not to adopt a Reddit-style downvoting or an upvoting system. The real motive behind the new button will be to pave the way for users to express themselves beyond the website’s “like” option.

“What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,” said the Facebook founder.

Now users no more will have to like  drastic statuses of someone’s funeral or ugly profile pictures of their friends.  It is expected that the much-awaited dislike button will be rolled out on FB in upcoming weeks after being extensively developed and tested.

Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement on launching the Dislike button was bound to spread like wildfire on social media. Now Twitter town is abuzz with the latest happening news.
