Facebook Mulling a “Sympathize” Button

Facebook’s “Like” button has a lot of uses, but it also has its limitations. For example, when a person posts about the passing of a loved one or an illness, friends may want to show their support but are reluctant to do so with a “Like.” Software engineers for the social media giant have therefore come up with a possible alternative: a “Sympathize” button. This button would replace the “Like” button on status updates tagged with a negative emotion. Facebook does not yet have plans to release the feature, but it could do so in the future. More… Discuss
