Facebook still isn't adding a “dislike” button any time soon.
That was one question Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg answered today as part of a larger question-and-answer session, which covered a broad range of topics including his personal life and how Facebook approaches social issues like economic disparty.
Here are a few paraphrased versions of the most interesting questions that were asked, and some of Zuckerberg's responses:
Some have asked for a dislike button because they want to say something isn't good, that's not something that's good for the world. There doesn't need to be a voting mechanism. I don't think that's socially very valuable or good for the community.
Often people tell us they don't feel comfortable pressing “like” because it isn't the appropriate sentiment. One of the things we've had some dialogue internally is what's the right way for people to easily express a broader range of emotion.
Don't worry about making mistakes too much. The number one question I'm asked is, what mistakes do you wish you could have avoided? I really don't think that's the right question; that's how you learn. The real question is how you learn from them, and not which things you can avoid.
