Facebook could be on the verge of introducing a 'dislike' button.

The option to ‘dislike’ is currently being trialed and is currently only available in Facebook Messenger to small number of users.

Up until recently, Facebook was reluctant to introduce a ‘dislike’ reaction over fears that it would lead to cyber-bullying and it was not popular with advertisers.

“We’re always testing ways to make Messenger more fun and engaging. This is a small test where we enable people to share an emoji that best represents their feelings on a message,” a Facebook representative told TechCrunch.
