Facebook plans to Add a New ‘Sympathize’ Button
Social Networking giant Facebook plans to add a new ‘Sympathize’ button to their service. It could be more emotional for users, a complex character.
The new first reported on The Huffington Post says that “It would be, ‘five people sympathize with this,’ instead of ‘five people ‘like’ this, “Which of course a lot of people were — and still are — very excited about. But we made a decision that it was not exactly the right time to launch that product. Yet”, according to Dan Muriello an Engineer from Facebook.

According to the reports Sympathy button will show up just as the like button we already seen under Facebook posts. When we see emotional posts of tragedy, bad experience we might see responses like ‘Sad to here”, “my condolence” or other messages that shows how people sympathize, here we can click the “Sympathize” button. Normally in this kind of situation even if they’re sympathizing thgey will hit like button and the author of the post might misconstrue.
according to a Facebook spokesperson, hackathons are “the foundation for great innovation and thinking about how we can better serve people around the world.” And even if not all ideas from hackathons are put into play, they “often help us think differently about how we can improve our service.”
