‘Hate’ button on Facebook?


When the ‘Like’ button was announced by Facebook in 2010, Mark Zuckerberg predicted there would be over 1 billion ‘Likes’ within 24 hours. Now, TechCrunch reports that the Facebook founder is considering a ‘Hate’ button and reportedly expects 2 billion ‘Hates’ on the first day.

Studies by the social media site have apparently shown that people have more to hate on the internet than like. There’s also reportedly a debate on whether the new button would be called “Hate” or “Dislike.”

Other buttons reportedly being considered are “Love,” “Who Cares,” and “Meh.”

Facebook currently earns a major part of its revenues from the Like button.
