Fb Testing Downvote Button to Let Customers Flag Inappropriate Feedback

Instead, what they are doing is to see how users will be able to give feedback not about the posts but about the comments in posts that are set to public. "This is running for a small set of people in the US only", a Facebook spokesperson told MSN News.

Downvote and dislike are basically the same thing, aren't they?

Facebook is adamant that the new button isn't a "dislike" button-it seems Reddit's habitual misuse of downvotes as an expression of opinion rather than relevancy is entirely unknown to Facebook's engineers-but we'll see what objective Facebook's users use it for. Maybe if there's a downvote button they can just do that and spare the world their misspelled apoplectic nonsense. The feature could be used to flag offensive or inappropriate content and force it to the bottom of the comment section. You can choose any of these options for a comment. The new feature can be found on any comment made on public page posts.

It is unknown whether the feature will be rolled out more widely at a later date. On Thursday, one Facebook user made fun of that 2016 post saying that he would use the "magnificent" downvote button to "knock down all the negativity across the internet". They can even undo the action.

After the 2012 Olympics we were in a committed relationship and Ariana lived at my residence in Seattle for more than a year. Kukors said the grooming started at age 13 when he became her coach at King Aquatics , a Seattle-area swim club.

Looks like Facebook is testing new waters. Given it isn't really performing quite the action any of us associate with "downvote", the name Facebook has chosen for it might not be the best.

In the past, there was a huge demand for a dislike button on Facebook, which was speculated to sit alongside the like button.

Over the years, people have debated about the possible introduction of the dislike button to the social media platform. The giant might release the same update to other regions before hitting to global markets.
