Is it difficult to work with Mark Zuckerberg

Zuckerberg and Co. are working on the "don't like" button

After years of hesitation, Facebook is finally working on a kind of "don't like" button. However, it seems more intended to be used to express compassion on unfortunate events. "People have asked for a 'dislike' button for many years," said Facebook boss Mark Zuckerbergduring a question and answer session at the company headquarters on Tuesday. "We finally heard it and we are working on it and we are going to introduce something that meets the needs of the larger community."

Especially with sad events such as a refugee crisis or the death of a family member, it is difficult to press a "Like" button, said Zuckerberg. That is why it is important to give users more options. So far, Facebook had stated that they saw no need for a universally applicable "Dislike" button - because that could create a lot of negative mood. Most recently, however, the question arose in Germany in connection with xenophobic comments in the world's largest online network.

Hate comments

Is that it now, Facebook?

"If you don't know what to do next, you set up a working group!" More came out of the summit between Federal Justice Minister Maas and Facebook in terms of hate comments. An indictment - for both Maas and Facebook.

In answers to other questions, Zuckerberg said, among other things, that he believed in a positive role for artificial intelligence in the future and, as a father-to-be, wished for a world without war and unnecessary pain for his daughter. dpa
