Facebook implementerar en "empati"-knapp

Inte riktigt ogilla men nära

Visa inte Webb-artiklar
Webb / Facebook

I stort sedan Facebook implementerade sin "lajkknapp" i form av en tumme upp har användare efterfrågat en "ogillaknapp" eller något liknande som man skulle kunna använda för att visa vad man tycker om något som man inte gillar. Det kan handlar om dödsfall, sjukdomsfall, länkar vars innehåll man inte håller med om och liknande.

Under en frågestund har nu Facebooks grundare Mark Zuckerberg uppgett att en sådan funktion kan vara på gång men att det i så fall inte handlar om en ren "ogillaknapp" utan snarare en slags "empatiknapp" där man kan visa sitt deltagande på diverse sätt beroende på vad ett specifikt inlägg handlar om. Zuckerberg sa bland annat:
"I think people have asked about the Dislike button for many years…today is the day where I actually get to say that we’re working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it. We didn’t want to just build a Dislike button because we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts. That doesn’t seem like the kind of community we want to create."
Det finns inga uppgifter om när den här empatiknappen kan tänkas dyka upp på Facebook men det verkar inte vara något som är på gång riktigt ännu hur som helst. Ni hittar ett klipp med Zuckerberg nedan och hela hans uttalande om en "dislike"-knapp under "Läs mer".

You know, I think people have asked about the Dislike button for many years and probably hundreds of people have asked about this. Today is a special day because today is the day where I actually get to say that we’re working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it.

You know, it took us awhile to get here. Because you know, we didn’t want to just build a Dislike button because we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts. That doesn’t seem like the kind of community we want to create. You don’t want to go through the process of sharing some moment that’s important to you in your day and then have someone down vote it. That isn’t what we’re here to build in the world.

But over the years of people asking for this, what we’ve kind of come to understand is that people aren’t looking an ability to downvote other people’s posts. What they really want is to be able to express empathy.

Not every moment is a good moment, right? And if you are sharing something that is sad, whether it’s something in current events like the refugee crisis that touches you or if a family member past away, then it might not feel comfortable to Like that post. But your friends and people want to be able to express that they understand and that they relate to you.

So I do think that it’s important to give people more options than just Like as a quick way to emote and share what they’re feeling on a post, so we’ve been working on this for awhile. It’s surprisingly complicated to make an interaction that you want to be that simple. But we have an idea that we think we’re going to be ready to test soon, and depending on how that does, we’ll roll it out more broadly.

But thank you for all the feedback on this over the years. I think we’ve finally heard you and we’re working on this and hopefully we will deliver something that meets the needs of our community.
