You're about to get a new form of entertainment for your 2 a.m. feedings. Mark Zuckerburg, CEO of Facebook, revealed during a town hall Q&A at the company's headquarters on Tuesday that they're rolling out some kind of dislike button.
Though the company has been hesitant to let people hate on a status or update, they've decided to give people the option to express sympathy or voice their opinion with this new button, which will roll out gradually over the next months.
