Facebook is’ I feel ya-button test




Facebook is testing a button next to the famous “Like button, which contacts on the social network to express empathy. Founder Mark Zuckerberg is not yet known what exactly the ‘I feel ya-button afterwards.

Building the button is “surprisingly complicated,” Zuckerberg said in a video, especially for such a simple concept. The button should quickly express that contacts on Facebook with your sympathize with posts that feels uncomfortable to press the Like button. In addition Zuckberberg cites as examples of posts about the refugee crisis and the death of a neighbor as examples.

Facebook has already previously stated that it was considering making such a switch, but now the social network is a lot further. The button is already well into development and Zuckerberg wants him to test in the foreseeable future. It is in any case not a Dislike button, because Facebook would be a forum according to Zuckerberg with up- and downvotes.

The Dutch social network Hyves was rather the Like button Respect, whose meaning could be interpreted in different ways and thus served as both “Like button as” empathy knop’.Het would be the first time that Facebook a add button next Like-, React- and Share knopppen at posts.
