In the latest release the website has started rolling out emoji that represent “Love”, “Haha”, “Yay”, “Wow”, “Sad” and “Angry”. The set of emoji is expected to compensate the people who did not want to ‘like’ a depressing or sad post on Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg, the Chief Executive of Facebook, had previously announced that the company is working on much demanded ‘dislike’ button.
Speaking at a question-answer session Facebook founder said “People have asked about the dislike button for many years. We’ve finally heard you and we’re working on this and we will deliver something that meets the needs of the larger community.”
“What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,” Zuckerberg said.
Moreover Zuckerberg also cited the ongoing Syrian Refugee crisis saying that people cannot ‘like’ the death of their loved ones. “The like button doesn’t always convey true thoughts,” he said.
Earlier Zuckerberg had for years dismissed calls for such a button to accompany its “like”, to avoid a Reddit-style voting system.
