Facebook working on a “downvote” button for flagging fake content

Over the years in Facebook, there has not been an avenue for people to express their feelings on a post other than the comment box.


Just like the like , happy, sad, wow express, Facebook is about to incorporate a downvote button which is the opposite of Like.
The downvotes feature is not in any way related to dislike that people have been craving for or a look alike of Reddit upvotes and downvotes.
The “ downvote ” button F a cebook is testing will help clean up some of the hateful comments and fake news posts that are currently wreaking havoc on the social media platform.

The downvote button will eventually appear in the area where you would normally “ Like ” a post or reply to a comment. When tapped, the downvote button hides a comment, and gives users additional reporting options like " Offensive", " Misleading ", and " Off Topic ". Those could help Facebook figure out if the comment is objectionable, a form of " fake news ", or just irrelevent.

According to Facebook, the feature test will affect about 5% of Android users who have “English” set as the default language in the app. The downvote button, for right now, only appears on public Page posts, not on Groups posts or those from individual users.
