‘Dislike’ or ‘Empathy’ button on facebook?


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg recently said that a ‘dislike’ button is to be added to the popular social network, the Facebook. Well, it seems a good step towards ensuring appropriate expression of emotion by the facebook users. But there is a chance of misuse of the new ‘dislike’ button which may spread hatred and hostility. In my opinion, instead of ‘dislike’, an ‘empathy’ button should be added to Facebook by which the users could express their feelings to posts containing death news or any sad events.
