14 New Buttons Facebook Needs More Than Dislike

A reaction for every idiot...

So after years of angry and insistent calls for its addition, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg has finally relented and unveiled plans for the long-fabled Dislike button, naturally restoring order in the Internet world by allowing everyone to simply express their most defining emotion: hatred. It marks something of a departure for Zuckerberg, who has so far resisted calls to add further buttons to the site in fear that it would inevitably be over-taken by trolls and the socially outraged. And while it's a good start - for everyone aside from the social media "experts" running giant corporate brand accounts who will get to see the other side of the coin - there's far more work to be done. Since everyone in the known Internet world is on there, it needs to be a broader experience, offering a greater spectrum of reactions that will stop most of the site's users' most infuriating behaviour patterns.

Function Google Is Your Friend. An invitation to turn off Facebook and look at a site designed to actually provide answers. Perfect For The people in your feed who seem remarkably unable to use a search engine to find the simplest of facts. "What time do the shops on the main road close?" "Is the Chinese takeaway open on a Sunday?" "Does this wart look infected?" Facebook might be a community, but asking any community for their opinion in place of fact is considerably less helpful (and far more annoying) than most posters would ever expect.
