Facebook to launch
Riding on the popularity of its ‘Like’ button,
Facebook might be planning to give users a
chance to showcase the opposite emotion
with the ‘Hate’ button.
The Like button, which is a social plugin,
lets users share content with friends and is
a popular way of connecting your Facebook
page with the page you’ve liked.
“When the user clicks the Like button on
your site, a story appears in the user’s
friends’ News Feed with a link back to your
website. Your page will appear in the “Likes
and Interests” section of the user’s profile,
and you have the ability to publish updates
to the user,” says Facebook.
According to Facebook’s S-1 filing, users
are now generating 2.7 billion Likes and
Comments per day. With the Hate button,
Facebook expects to at least double that.
The S-1 noted “popular Pages on Facebook
include Lady Gaga, Disney, and Manchester
United, each of which has more than 20
million Likes.” Many inside the company
think the Hates could easily top that,”
“Sources at Facebook say Mark is
estimating 2 billion Hates on the first day.
Facebook studies have shown the sad fact
that people hate things on the Internet
more than they like things. There’s also an
internal debate on whether the new button
should be called ‘Hate’ or ‘Dislike’,” reports
the technology website.
While the tech world is abuzz with
speculation wheather it is just a prank or
reality, the verdict is that Facebook will see
an increase in revenue if it decides to
introduce the Hate button.
But is it true Or just a April Fool..😀
