Facebook is making a Dislike button, and it’s apparently going to head into testing soon. “People have asked about the ‘Dislike’ button for many years and today is a special day, because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it and are very close to shipping a test of it,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said today during a public Q&A session, according to CNBC.

He said Facebook was “very close” to having it ready for user testing.

However he went on to say he did not want it to be a mechanism with which people could “down vote” others’ posts. Instead, it will be for times when clicking “like” on “sad” posts felt insensitive.
