Earlier in 2015 Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of the company himself confirmed that they will not add a dislike button to Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg said
We didn’t want to just build a Dislike button because we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts. That doesn’t seem like the kind of community we want to create.
