Facebook Set To Enable Downvote Button For Posts, See Full Details Below;

Sometimes when reading/ checking posts on facebook, we do across some posts that doesn't make any sense or add value to you but there is no way to express your feeling except the sad and angry emoji buttons.

The good news Now is that Facebook is currently working on a Downvote button that will be available in the platform to help make it more user friendly, allowing people express their feelings towards posts and comments which will also help reduce the the rate of fake news and useless comments on Facebook.

However, the downvotes feature is not in any way related to "dislike" that facebookers have been craving for or a look alike of Reddit upvotes and downvotes.

But the Facebook “downvote” button is an innovation that will help clean up some of the hateful comments and fake news posts that are currently wreaking havoc on the social media platform.

When it's ready for use, the downvote button will appear in the area where you would normally “Like” a post or reply to a comment.

Whenever you tap on it, the downvote button hides a comment, and gives users additional reporting options like "Offensive", "Misleading", and "Off Topic".

These feature will help Facebook figure out if the comment is objectionable, a form of "fake news", or just irrelevant.

Facebook revealed that the test will affect about 5% of Android users who have “English” set as the default language in the app.

Meanwhile, at the moment, the downvote button only appears on public Page posts and not on Groups posts or individual posts.

Thanks for reading...Always visit for your latest updates.
