Facebook is testing a new button to hide offensive comments

12 February 2018
The social network Facebook may soon please users with an interesting innovation, the testing of which has already begun. We are talking about the introduction of an additional "thumbs down" button.Despite the fact that the button is the opposite of the usual "I like" reaction, contrary to the hopes of many users, it will not mean "disliked". Instead, by clicking on the "thumbs down" icon, you can hide the comment and complain about its content. In doing so, the user can choose from several reasons for sending a complaint. Thus, you can report comments that are off-topic, misleading, or have offensive content. Unfortunately, only some users of the mobile application Facebook for Android living in the U.S., who specified English as the primary language, can try out the new feature for now. No information about the timing of the full-fledged launch of the new feature for all users of the social network is yet available. All we can advise those who would like to try it out in practice is to download the Facebook application to their gadget and follow the updates.
