In a bid to promote more "meaningful" posts for its users, Facebook is now testing a downvote button for flagging comments.
As the prime aim of designing the downvote button is to help Facebook receive feedback directly from users, downvote view counts are not being visible to users, as appeared in screenshots by social media strategist Christina Hudler in a tweet.
For years, many of Facebook's two-billion users have campaigned for a "dislike" button, a feature which Facebook has repeatedly refused to address. Instead, it's exploring a feature for users to give it feedback about comments on public page posts.
For his part, user Dustin Hensley said in a post that the feature would be "good for people". So apparently, this new DownVote button is designed for the Facebook and not for the users like us. It seems that #Facebook insisted on mentioning that the #Button was not a 'downvote' button as some users were expecting. The test launched on Thursday with many users seeing the option to "downvote" in the comment section of posts. You can DownVote the comments by selecting the DownVote button located besides the comments. And hence, don't forget to comment your opinions on Facebook below. Nevertheless, it is quite presumable that the Menlo Park-headquartered company will be able to enhance user engagements through the new move as more users would get a chance to mark inappropriate comments - at least, initially on public page posts. Still we could use it just to give proper feedbacks to the giant regarding objectionable comments.
