he past few years, Facebook fans have been asking the company CEO Mark Zuckerberg whether he will ever introduce a 'Dislike' button with thumbs down emoji on the social network. While Zuckerberg has hinted several times that it might not happen, it seems that the company still has plans for implementing the feature, even if only in its standalone Messenger app.
As reported by TechCrunch website, Facebook is bringing 'reactions' buttons to its Messenger app. It has been mentioned that some users are able to select between any of the seven emoji characters representing different reactions, for each text. This is something we have already seen in Slack team messaging app.

According to the screenshots shared by the website, users will get options to choose reactions such as Heart-eyes, Lol, Wow, Sad, Angry, Like and thumbs-down Dislike. This is also the first time we've seen an indication that Facebook might make the 'dislike' reaction mainstream. But since it's claimed to be in testing phases, it's not for sure if the feature will be launched for all or not.
These seven reaction emojis on Facebook Messenger are not the same 'reaction' emojis seen inside the main app. Instead, these are regular on-screen keyboard emojis. It has been further reported that both parties (and everyone else, if it is a group) will be able to view reactions and the count of people agreeing to it. Tapping on the count will give a list of all those who have agreed to that particular emoji.

Facebook too, confirmed the news to TechCrunch by stating that "We're always testing ways to make Messenger more fun and engaging. This is a small test where we enable people to share an emoji that best represents their feelings on a message."
It has been explained that Facebook never built a Dislike button for its main app as it could've brought more negativity in posts. But in Messenger, where users plan and coordinate about events and other things, introducing a thumbs-down button may be of some help.  Read More...
