Speaking at Facebook's annual Compassion Research Day, engineer Dan Muriello admitted that the social media giant has, in the past, given serious consideration to adding additional buttons to expand user options beyond simply "liking" a post.
For example, a "sympathize" button has been suggested and discussed at previous hackathons held by the company, and the reason is obvious.
It's not uncommon to see a status with bad or untimely news, and often the "like" button is just our way of saying "we saw this and want you to know that" rather than saying "we LIKE that a storm flooded your basement this weekend."
Are you a fan of Facebook? Do you wish there were more options or is like enough for you? What would you like to see added?
I'd love to see some more general options - something like "yay" "boo" and so on. I'm not a fan of the dislike suggestion because I think that could get ugly.
