Why Facebook Never Added Option like “Dislike”?
Till now, Facebook never added “Dislike” option on the wall. And, there is a reason that Facebook never wanted their traffic to get distracted. Although, they tested the “dislike” option, but never took off to users on social networking site. They feel that disliking the post can bring a feeling of negativity across the social network.
If a “like” button can be powerful that it can express your emotions in a very simple way. With a single click, you can tell your friends that you acknowledge what they’ve done. It’s a small yet powerful way to convey and unite individuals. Thus, you can well imagine that how powerful the “dislike” button could be, which might drawback the traffic. This is the reason why Facebook never introduced “dislike” button.
But to cover up the gap, Facebook has introduced emojis in which we can find sad and angry expression to show our dissatisfaction.
So, in the end, I would say that with the launch of Facebook “Reactions”, now people will get the maximum benefit personally as well as commercially. Rule your marketing strategies with these smart 6 emojis.
