Facebook may come out with a 'sympathize' button

  • Now you want have an option of "sympathizing" with friends on Facebook if they post a status about breaking-up or having a bad day.

    Reports suggest that the "Dislike" button is out of the picture but the company continues to look for ways to expand people's responses since the "Like" button is inappropriate in case of any sad news. 

    An engineer mentioned that the idea was a hit at the hackathon but the company won't launch the product just yet. Several other ideas including the "Like" button, which surfaced at hackathons have been included in the site.
