Re: Maybe there needs to be a ....
I need both 6 & 7. The only thing is what I need 6 for is sometimes asked over the phone. I once had someone call and ask me if there are any nuts in nutmeg. But I also have seen posts asking what to tip during the holidays, and there are plenty of guidelines to be found online.  And I can use. TIWIUY (This Is Why I'm Unfriending You): for things like being put in groups by  people who don't ask me first, despite my having said over and over again that I will unfriend anyone who does that.

Sympathize Button, Meet Grumpy
How about the "get off my lawn" button for when we are feeling old and grumpy and those lil whippersnappers are complaining about their 10th high school reunions?

Forgive button
It's interesting how easily Facebook posts elicit the snarkier side of humanity.  Maybe we simply need a forgive button, that would let us to practice forgiveness instead of scorn whenever someone decides to post something truly stupid, thoughtless, or selfish. (Uh-oh. I can feel the scorn coming.)

Shrug
The Shrug button says, "I could barely work up the energy to click this button, your post is so boring"

Humblebragging
I vote for a "Humble Bragger" button for people who engage in that exquisitely passive-aggressive form of bragging. For instance, someone who posts a picture of his view of a basketball game from the third row and writes, "Boy, did I luck out getting these tix. Can't believe it!" I prefer they just gloat about it ("Woo hoo. Third row baby!") -- it's more honest.

Maybe we need a "I typed too fast" button. :-)

One more favorite
This was another good one: a grammar alert button for those who confuse their/there/they're among other mistakes that drive people like me crazy. :-)

What else would you add? Let's hear them.

Not going to happen
Sadly, it's unlikely ad-dependent Facebook would ever do anything that could be turned against its advertisers. Think how embarrassing it would be if, say, Coca Cola got more dislikes than likes.
