Not all news on Facebook is good news, which is why the social media company may eventually add another button to its platform that allows users to do more than just "like" a post.
At Facebook's annual Compassion Research Day, engineer Dan Muriello said that a fellow engineer had created a "sympathize" button while participating at one of the company's hackathons. The news was first reported by The Huffington Post.
Currently on Facebook's platform, users can "like" and share comments on their friends' posts. But users have demanded for awhile an alternate to the "like" button because not all posts on the platform are appropriate to "like."
