Facebook started testing a new function

Testing is held on a small share of users and only in the USA.  

The largest world social network Facebook started testing the button “downvote” that is one of the options of “dislike”, which was waited for long by users, BNews.kz reports with reference to vedomosti.ru.

However, it will not operate as the opposite of the button "like", downvote will be only on Facebook.

"We do not test the button "dislike." We investigate the option for users that will allow to evaluate the response to comments of other users to public posts. Testing is conducted at a small percentage of users and only in the USA," the report said.

Users who choose to assign a disliked comment "downvote" will have the opportunity to select its characteristics, which will go to Facebook - "insult," "misleading" and "off-topic." In the future, downvote can become a permanent option for commenting on posts. The creator of the social network, Mark Zuckerberg, has repeatedly said that he will not introduce "dislike", because he does not want to turn Facebook into a forum for voting "for" and "against."
