For years, Facebook users have been demanding the rollout of a "dislike" button on the platform. While reports of such a feature arriving imminently have surfaced intermittently, the closest thing to it that we have right now is a plethora of reactions, which include "Wow", "Angry", and "Sad", but not the highly anticipated "Dislike".

However, it now appears that the firm is working on something similar for the platform, but only for comment moderation.
