During a public Q&A this week, Zuckerberg noted, "I think people have asked about the Dislike button for many years and probably hundreds of people have asked about this. Today is a special day because today is the day where I actually get to say that we’re working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it."
The CEO says it will offer the Facebook community a chance to express “empathy,” so that when a user posts sad or bad news, we can respond with a compassionate dislike. But we all know that haters are gonna hate, and that a true Dislike button will more likely be used negatively. (Just what Facebook needs: more negativity.)
So, Mr. Zuckerberg, we propose that you instead institute buttons we can really use, like these:
You know the posts I'm talking about. Those inane tidbits that waste far too many seconds of our precious leisure time:
Sharing "too much information" should be embarrassing for you, but that ultra-personal stuff somehow ends up making us feel uncomfortable. Please stop.
Seriously, shut up about stuff you know nothing about, be it politics, religion, current events...
F as in FAIL. As in the opposite of grade A. As in "Have you ever taken an English grammar lesson in your life?"
If I haven't responded to your first 17 attempts to get me to play Angry Birds on Facebook, then I'm probably not going to accept your 18th invite either.
Posting the news of a new baby in the family is endearing. Showing off is not.
In the time it takes to ask a stupid question on Facebook, you could have looked up the information yourself.
If adding buttons 1 through 7 is too much to ask, can we at least get a button that lets us ignore the detritus?
Because, more often than not, Facebook is full of wonderful and interesting bits from our friends' lives. And hitting the "Like" button just doesn't express that strongly enough.
