Facebook's Testing a "Dislike" Button

Facebook's Testing a

The Messenger reactions feature adds to a function introduced to the website in early 2016. In the messaging app, you're more likely to be chatting with someone you know, whereas in the general news feed, the little emojis can be used to react to posts to anyone posting publicly.

Asked about the new reactions, Facebook representatives said that the messages reactions have reached a handful of users and if they will appreciate and use them, they will introduce them to the rest of the world. This is also to be seen, which reaction of which user has shown on a particular text.

As reported by TechCrunch, the Reactions tab is available for every message shared on personal chats and group chats as well. Even so, we can not deny that this is a feature that many users would find interesting, especially to increase the appeal of Messenger in work environments.

As first noted by TechCrunch and later confirmed by Facebook, the new reactions feature in Messenger is similar to the expanded reactions that are available in response to posts in the Newsfeed.

Facebook is finally testing a dislike button.

For the record, the Facebook Messenger "Reactions" feature does not yet appear for all users.

Facebook tells TechCrunch, "We're always testing ways to make Messenger more fun and engaging".

And this time, you can give them a big old thumbs down, according to Tech Crunch. Well, we have to wait and watch how the new addition in Facebook reactions performs for the Facebook Messenger app. So it is entirely possible that the one being labeled as Dislike button could be a Thumbs down voting reaction. They claim that the new reaction button in the app is actually a "no" button rather than a "dislike" to be used when trying to organise things. It can serve as a way for people to vote on whether they want to do something. To get around that, Facebook developed Reactions so friends could express more in their quick response.

Other Reactions include the angry face, haha, heart eyes, wow and sad.

Facebook is perceiving the dislike option as a "no" button.
