Facebook dislike button? Sort of. More like the revived Digg bury.
There are 23,335 people in the "Make a 'Dislike' button on Facebook!" group on Facebook. The company might not be granting them their wish quite yet, but it might introduce a subtle change to the Web site that allows users to vote yay or nay on comments.
AllFacebook reports that the new feature in the comments plug-in would allow users to vote on comments by pressing a green up button or a red down button. The votes count toward a "feedback rating." The more positive the votes, the higher the rating.
Here's a screenshot from AllFacebook.com:
The feature seems similar to Digg's bury button, which disappeared in the last upgrade, but was recently introduced after Digg users complained about its absence.
What do you think about the proposed change? Do you want a dislike button or do you prefer snarky comments as a way to show your displeasure?
