"Dislike" Button On Facebook Is A Scam

You might wish for a "dislike" button on Facebook, but wishful thinking could get you tangled up with scam artists.

Security experts say if someone sends you something on Facebook, asking that you click on the "dislike" button, don't do it. It may read "I just got the dislike button, so now i can dislike all of your dumb posts LOL!!" It may also say, "Get the official dislike button". Both would be followed by a link. It's just another way for someone to get personal information.

Facebook says they may introduce a similar feature, but right now, "dislike" does not exist.

    what i like to know is how my son requested that my daughter and myself confrim him as a friend and he passed away over a year ago. Facebook needs to stop the generic request

    There's Like, Unlike if you change your mind - for ads and such... and for removing ads you have a set of reasons you want it gone if you feel like saying so. I don't see a point in a Dislike, especially for posts. If you don't like someone's posts you don't read them and certainly don't have them on your friend list. That's just stupid. People should know better than to add just any old thing that pops up on their page anyway.
