After being persuaded by millions of users all over the world, Facebook says that they are now working on its new feature, the “dislike” button, and will be testing it soon.

This is due to a question submitted online by a user of why there is no choices of buttons along the lines like “I’m sorry”, “interesting” or “dislike” in addition to the classic thumbs-up “like” button.

The announcement was made by Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.

Netizens shared different opinions about the upcoming new feature of the social media giant. Some say it’s a good thing for they can already dislike posts that they don’t want while others think it could only start a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts.

Zuckerbergsays that he understands the awkwardness to click “like” on a post about events such as a death in the family or the current refugee crisis and that there should be a better way for users to express that they understand and that they relate to you.

The new feature will be released soon, and that they will be doing tests first before officially rolling it out for public use.
