‘Sympathize’ button on Facebook


Facebook is looking into the idea of putting a ‘sympathize’ button since it has been observed that there are numerous individuals posting about their sad moments – death of family member, or any other unfortunate events – and Facebook wants friends and relatives to show their care.

Here’s how it could work: if a Facebook user were to tag his or her status with a negative emotion (from the social networking site’s lists of feelings), the ‘sympathise’ button would automatically replace the ‘like’ button.

This new feature is still on the process of engineering or on its work to be placed soon.
