Facebook to Add Dislike Button, Video Chat
Zuck says don’t forget virtual reality. Never forget VR
Can we say that Tuesday’s interview with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the Townhall is any sign or indication? We can be optimistic about the big change that will soon happen in the world of internet users both on and off Facebook.
“The dislike button has been in so much demand for so many years,” Zuckerberg said. “Everybody can be rest assured that we are working on it and very soon it will be shipped”
The Facebook CEO shed more light on the need to provide users with an avenue to express their uncomfortable views and feelings to events around them. He went on to further explain that one cannot just always be on the right side of whatever comes his/her way”What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,” he said.
On this note, the so-called ‘dislike’ button will allow users to have an alternative view about events going on around them as they will be able to choose whether or not to like what is going on around them.
Another amazing development in the works is the long awaited video chat in Facebook Messenger that is becoming the order of the day as it is well pronounced, known and dominated by Skype and Apple’s Face Time.
More also, Zuckerberg enlightened us on the fact that the latest trend now but yet unpopular is the advent of virtual reality (VR). He said that Mainstream immersive VR can become an achievement in 10 years from now. He further said, on the long run the $2 billion acquired of Oculus VR could still pay him off.
For its part, Facebook expects to ship Oculus VR headsets in early 2016. The company is also currently working on bringing a VR app to Apple and Android smartphones.
