VIDEO: Facebook is working on a Dislike button

After years of requests from its users, Facebook has confirmed it’s working on a "dislike" button.

"People have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day, because today is the day I can say we’re working on it and shipping it," Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said during a live Q&A session Tuesday.

"Not every moment is a good moment," he said. "If you share something that’s sad, like a refugee crisis that touches you or a family member passes away it may not be comfortable to like that post."
