Washington: Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said that he is considering adding a "dislike" button to Facebook posts, allowing users to express emotions in another way other than "like" or leaving a comment.

According to CNET, Zuckerberg said that the button would not be to express displeasure but maybe to respond when people post unhappy things, such as a death in the family or a personal struggle.

People say that they do not feel comfortable pressing the Like button when there are such posts and that Facebook is figuring out a way where people can express a broader array of emotions, said the company's CEO.

He also said that allowing users to say that "dislike" button provides a way to say they do not agree with something wouldn't be "good for the world."

Zuckerberg's comment came during an hour-long, town-hall-style question-and-answer session at the company's headquarters.
