Might we finally be getting the long-sought-after “dislike” button on Facebook?
The social-networking giant is working on an overhaul of its News Feed product, where users post status updates, photos, videos, and other items of interest, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Facebook is considering an unfiltered News Feed, which would dramatically increase the amount of content users see on their homepage, people familiar with the situation told the newspaper.
The site is also working on expanding the functionality of its “Like” button to include other hand gestures created by third-party developers, allowing users to share information about products or services with their friends. The move is seen as key to attracting more marketers to the social network.
A Facebook representative told CNET that the company was testing News Feed changes but declined to address changes to the “Like” button.
