Thumbs down: Facebook to trial dislike button

Dislike

Now there is talk of the feature coming to Messenger, too, with the company reportedly testing emoji and a dislike button within the chat app.

The test is centered around what basically are thumbs up or a thumbs down emojis being added to the list of Facebook's other emoji reaction options, like love, laughter, wow, sad and angry. "This is a small test where we enable people to share an emoji that best represents their feelings on a message", they said to the technology news platform.

Facebook users have been wanting a dislike button for some time now, and although 2017 might be the year in which they finally get it, it won't be where you'd expect. Instead of adding it to the current Reactions button for posts, the company is testing the feature in Messenger.

According to published reports, two other members of the household - a father and child - escaped with minor injuries. State and local fire officials were investigating along with the Northwestern District Attorney.

The so-called Messenger Reactions are likely to be made available to all users in the coming weeks as soon as they prove themselves in the test.

For the record, the Facebook Messenger "Reactions" feature does not yet appear for all users. In addition to the dislike button, there are also the reaction options "Likes", "Love", "Haha", "Wow" and "Sad", known from Newsfeed. It is part of the reaction emojis that can be attached to a message in the chat.

Here's how to use Facebook Reactions - and how to get them if you don't see them.

The Chilean also helped energise the rather hapless-looking Olivier Giroud, who headed against the bar early in the second half. For Wenger to rest Sanchez for a match that was without a doubt more important than the Champions League one was absurd.

It remains to be seen if such a button will eventually arrive.

The thumbs-down button in the Messenger app will be the most prominent position given to a "negative" or "no" feature added to the social network.

As of this moment the company is rolling out this feature to a limited number of users.

Pence denies double standard in email scandal
On Saturday, Pence tweeted a copy of the letter sent by his lawyer, accusing the AP of "violating her privacy and our security". It said Pence used the account, which was hacked last summer, to discuss sensitive matters and homeland security issues.

The update to Messenger appears to be similar to a recent iOS update Apple introduced to its Messages app. So, it is possible that new reactions may never make it to the chat solution. The social giant says that lots of people use messenger for coordinating with a group of people and reactions will make that easier. Since its inception, however, the absence of the Dislike option has been noted.
