Why Would A Dislke Button On Facebook Be Bad? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why.Why would a Dislke button on Facebook be bad?” Good question. (OK, it’s a little odd but again it beats answering those questions about odd intimate acts. Seriously? We thought DVDA was just some new social media abbreviation, mmmkay?)

In a Q&A session earlier this week Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the possible creation and addition of a Dislike button. As he said: “Not every moment is a good moment.”

While this could work in terms of letting Facebook and their business clients let them know about what everyone on the network dislikes, a lot of people see potential problems.

Guest speaker Sonia Dasgupta is the digital editor for CBS Baltimore and a contributor to Mix106.5FM’s website believe that people are already toocontent to just “like” your good news rather than take the time to write a congratulations.”

(Maybe. Then again, just how much am I supposed to write when someone shares what they had for dinner or the latest cute kitten picture?)

She continues: “Can you imagine now how lazy we’ll all be just disliking people’s sad/bad news statuses?”

We can already just say we didn’t see it though, right? Seriously what else ya got Sonia?

Dasgupta responds with an explanation and examples of what could be the biggest problem with a Dislike button. She has Facebook friends who “have friends who have opinions all over the place” about many subjects including politics, abortion, gay rights, etc.

She says they’re “good people. . . I don’t always agree with their opinions, but they are my Facebook friends. If they write about something I don’t agree with, I either . . . ignore it or . . . I comment on the post but in a respectful manner. I make my point and I move on. But not everyone is as respectful.”

She gives an example of the potential problem. “That pro-gay marriage post you put up there – what would you reaction be if a friend just ‘disliked’ it and moved on?”

She questions what would happen if someone posted a very emotional status and it was “disliked” by a friend. She asks: “Won’t it make people who already get hot-headed behind a computer (probably mobile device) just get more hot-headed and maybe meaner?”

Dasgupta notes: “With a dislike button, if someone wanted to be rude or mean, they could essentially dislike your good news too.”

Kids will have yet another way to tell each other they “suck”. With the overly-PC Crowd telling everyone they’re “special” and “everyone deserves a trophy”, this could be trouble.

Even Zuckerberg has concerns. He told Marketing Land that he doesn’t “want to create a situation where people are downvoting other people’s posts.”

The Dislike button could be like a super-power. It could be used for good but . . . it could also be used for evil.
