Facebook Using Downvote to Flag Bad Comments
Facebook downvote button is being tested by the social networking giant, and the same has been made available to a few users. The button is not used on the posts, rather its objective is to flag offensive comments.
Currently users can express their view through different emojis. However, these are a less effective medium when it comes to replying to a nasty comment. According to the social networking website, the Facebook downvote button should curb the comments that might hurt the feelings of someone or disrespect someone. As of now, only a group of users are able to test the new button.
