Facebook is testing out a ‘Dislike’ button

As you all know we love online marketing, being an SEO company is not our only focus, we like to ensure we stay up to date with all things social media marketing too. We have recently discovered that Facebook is currently testing various new reaction emoji’s.
Facebook users have demanded a dislike button for years and now the social network has finally responded, but it’s not what you’d expect. The social network has confirmed that it’s testing the ‘Dislike button along with other emoji Reactions’ within its Facebook Messenger App.

The dislike feature isn’t going to be in the News Feeds.

Facebook in a statement said “We’re always testing ways to make Messenger more fun and engaging. This is a small test where we enable people to share an emoji that best represent their feelings on a message.”

Facebook views the Dislike button in Messenger as a way of saying “no” to something? It could even come in handy while interacting with Messenger “chatbot” programs. Users will easily be able to give feedback to brand chatbots by liking or disliking the responses they get.
So the big question is how will it work?

As you can see above users will be able to hover over a message and respond with a number of different reaction emoji. These reaction emoji includes thumbs-up like, thumbs-down Dislike, heart-eyes, lol, wow, sad, or angry emoji.

Your response is then displayed below the relevant message. Everyone in the chat will then see that reaction counted below the specific message and you will be able to see a full list of who all left which reaction.

The feedback Facebook receives during the test will determine how quickly the two features will be rolled out to all users.

What are your thoughts about Facebook adding a Dislike button along with other emoji to the Messenger App? You think they might possibly consider introducing the dislike emoji to the newsfeed reaction list?
