Facebook finally launches 'dislike,' but only for Messenger

Liking comments and status updates on Facebook has been a long running theme of the social network, but you’ve never been able to demonstrate your disdain with a "dislike" until today. While Facebook isn’t introducing a full dislike button, the Messenger part of the service is getting a giant thumbs-down sticker as part of a free pack released this week. Stickers were originally introduced in April, but a recent hackathon has resulted in a “Likes” sticker pack that includes a sore thumb, fiery thumb, poke, and lots more.

The new sticker pack is available from the Sticker Store, which is accessible via the smiley face within a Facebook Messenger chat session on the web or mobile apps. While it won’t bring the highly requested dislike button to comments and status updates, you’ll be able to send your friends as many sore thumbs and thumbs-down stickers as you want to express any dissatisfaction over that Christmas sweater they're wearing this holiday.
