Facebook Testing Downvote Button


Social media giant Facebook has confirmed that its now testing a downvote button on a limited set of public Page post comment reels.

According to TechCrunch, a Facebook spokesperson told that the motivation behind the downvote button is to create a lightweight way for people to provide a signal to Facebook that a comment is inappropriate, uncivil, or misleading.

"We are not testing a dislike button. We are exploring a feature for people to give us feedback about comments on public page posts. This is running for a small set of people in the U.S. only," Facebook told TechCrunch.

When clicked, the downvote button hides a comment, and gives users additional reporting options like "Offensive", "Misleading", and "Off Topic".
