Thanks to an announcement by Mark Zuckerberg during a recent Facebook Townhall meeting that the company was working on a new button expressing a sentiment other than "like," much press coverage has centered around the idea. Zuckerberg said that he thought it was a touchy issue:
"It's important to give people more options than just 'like'" to help express empathy and sympathy. Not every moment is a good moment... We didn’t want to just build a Dislike button because we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts. That doesn’t seem like the kind of community we want to create.”
Zuckerberg spoke of how Facebook users have long asked for a "dislike" button. Yet if we had to make a list of other new button suggestions to send to the Facebook brass, what would we include?
