Ever since Facebook introduced the Like button back in 2009, we've all been naturally wondering when its polar opposite and negative equivalent would be gracing our screens. You can up and downvote things on reddit, give things a thumbs up or down on YouTube – even the Daily Mail comments section allows you to do this. The list could go on.

But don't worry: yesterday Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook is working on a "dislike" button. Based on a statement he gave, it seems as if there may be more than just a dislike button in the works, but situation appropriate responses that can be given without, you know, spending time actually writing a comment.

"People have asked about the ‘dislike’ button for many years, and probably hundreds of people have asked about this, and today is a special day because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it," said Zuckerberg. "Not every moment is a good moment if you share something that’s sad like a refugee crisis that touches you or a family member passes away, it may not be comfortable to ‘like’ that post…I do think it's important to give people more options than liking it."

Whether or not these "more options" will be the BuzzFeed style of "LOL", "WTF", "Cute" etc. remains to be seen. Likelihood is they'll be a little more comprehensive. Like maybe "unfortunate" … "how irritating."
