The CEO of world’s most popular social network, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), has ditched traditional media communication practices with the latest Q&A sessions conducted by the company. The social network is not likely to launch the much talked about “dislike” button on its network.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook Inc, conducted second direct question-and-answer session with the users at the California headquarters of the company. During the session, Zuckerberg discussed wide array of things including managing children using the social network and addition of dislike button to the network.
While talking about the dislike button, Zuckerberg said,
“I don’t think there needs to be a voting mechanism on Facebook [for] whether posts are good or bad, I don’t think that’s socially very valuable or good for the community. But the thing that I think is very valuable is that there are more sentiments that people want to express than just positivity or that they like something.”
The CEO further discussed the “real-name” controversy issue and confirmed a better solution in future. He further discussed that the company is trying to find the right way through which people can express their emotions for a particular post.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) published results of a psychological experiment done 2012 sending creepy waves in its members, although the company apologized for the same. Zuckerberg addressed the matter by saying,
“We took that opportunity to go internally and reflect on whether we had a good process internally, and we tightened things up a bit.”
He added that the network would continue experimenting, which makes the site better. However, experiments including mood testing, minor behavior testing, and privacy testing would either be stopped or go through a efficient review process.
The shares of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) are trading at $77.83 and the social network accomplished the $200 billion market capitalization mark earlier this year.
