Changes on Facebook are no new news, a few tweaks here and a few changes there, the grand Facebook overhaul steadily continues. And today, discreetly, came the biggest addition (or probably a shocker) yet â€“ the â€œI donâ€™t like this photoâ€ option or in simple words, a â€œdislike photoâ€ option. The long debated dislike option has finally been rolled out by Facebook but still might take some time to appear in each userâ€™s account.
Itâ€™s Not What You Think It Is
The new feature though, is not a button similar to the â€œlikeâ€ button. It is actually an option that appears in the â€œoptions tabâ€ on the photo when you click on a photo to view it in large screen. Check the image below â€“
So when you click on the â€œI donâ€™t like this photoâ€ option another dialogue box will appear asking you why you donâ€™t like this photo. See image below â€“
So, the reason you opted for not liking the picture will be conveyed to the owner of the picture via a personal message. (See image below). Also, just in case you donâ€™t want to convey the owner about your dislike, there is an option to unfriend him/her as well.
Not A Notification, But A Personal Message
The surprising thing is that, in order to prevent the wide spread unrest that a dislike button is capable of creating amongst the users, the dislike will be conveyed through a message and wonâ€™t appear as a usual notification the user gets when someone likes his/her photo.
