Facebook creates 'sympathise' button
The social networking website has developed an alternative to the 'like' feature: a 'sympathise' button.
A software engineer at Facebook said that although the button had been developed as part of an internal project, they had no immediate plans to launch it.
The button is only available if a user selects a negative emotion from the list of feelings on their status update, then the 'like' button would change to 'sympathise'.
The new potential feature was specifically created for status updates that would be inappropriate to 'like', such as those writing about their loved ones passing away or illnesses.
