Facebook Tests 'Downvote' Button For Some Users: Report

2018-02-09 12:29
Facebook has begun testing a “downvote” button with some users, available only in a limited number of post types, the Daily Beast reports. Reddit, the website best known for its use of both positive and negative signaling, has shown mixed results from studies where downvotes were hidden from other users, and a number of communities opt to turn the feature off to prevent mass-downvoting (called brigading) of controversial content. It’s unclear if the feature will ever be rolled out to all users, and Facebook has not yet responded for a request for comment.
