Re: Dusting Off My Account with the Zuckster in Mind
vnewman, that's totally how it will be used. It is so awkward when you read someone's update that really sucks --- like they're in the hospital or their dog died --- and people click like. I hate to click like there. Why am I liking the fact that a bad thing happened? Total jerk move, no?! Now, you can show people real support during their times of crises and need by giving the big thumbs down to bad news. If Zucky really wants to have a real dislike button --- as in, this brand sucks, get off my feed --- they need a middle finger button.

Re: Dusting Off My Account with the Zuckster in Mind
Never fear @Technocrati - I read how it will not be as much of a Dislike/Thumbs Down button as it will be a support/sympathize button.  You know Zucky doesn't really want to open a pandora's box of hatred, especially toward him!

Re: Irony
Facebook should be reviewing posts that get too many dislikes, if this feature is involved, then Facebook has to up its game in the security and user protection.

Re: Irony
I'd be inclined to use it for anything demanding that I like and share. I actually cease following people who post that kind of thing too often, particularly when it is political and giving a stacked deck picture of things,

Re: Irony
I always feel like these pieces could do with some more content too. Single lines with a picture is a bit too simple for blog like this.

"This is awesome. I would hit the dislike option mainly for the posts on political opinions. I hate it."

Shamika, it's not only meant for political opinions, you can use it for any article/opinions, which you haven't liked.

Thumbs up/down symbol
"It seems like a minor deal. Some social media and content aggregator sites have had a thumbs down for a long time. But it is a big change for Facebook, and it promises to change the attitude and atmosphere at Facebook."

David, we (information week) also have similar thumbs up/down symbol over the right top corner for all comments; but so far I haven't seen any one using the thumps down symbol :).
