The most requested potential feature for Facebook, according to CEO Mark Zuckerg, is a Dislike button, but the site’s founder has nixed the idea, according to Yibada. While people feel it is inappropriate to click “like” when someone posts about something sad or controversial, Zuckerberg has said he doesn’t think a Dislike button would be a “force for good.”
It makes sense. Without the dislike button, there is enough argumentation and even cyber bullying on Facebook. A Dislike button would make social media even more divisive. And what would the Dislike button mean anyway? That someone is upset at the travail someone else is experiencing or not appreciate the views expressed.

Zuckerberg acknowledged there may be other ways to express users’ full range of emotions. But then again, there is always the comment box. And likes, as opposed to dislikes, are a great way to drum up attention or business.
