Facebook Messenger gets more 'Like' stickers; including a dislike

Facebook has launched new stickers for users of the Facebook Messenger app on the web, iOS and Android, which now features more gestures based on the "Like" sticker.

Users can add the new 'Like' stickers to the Messenger app or chat window on the web through the Sticker Store. The sticker set known as 'Likes' is available immediately and comes at no cost.

The new stickers introduce for the first time a 'Dislike' button gesture which has been a requested feature on the main website. We've reported that Facebook has been testing a 'Sympathize' button, and looking at these stickers maybe we can also expect to see a proper 'Dislike' button in the future as well. While these stickers cannot be posted to the News Feed, it's good to see more ways of expressing certain feelings in a toned down manner for users who do not prefer the cartoon stickers in Facebook Chat conversations.

The Facebook Messenger can be downloaded on the Apple iTunes Store, or at the Google Play Store.

Last I heard...some Executive Engineer for Facebook said there will probably not be a "dislike" button because they believe social media should be a "positive experience."

I honestly don't see the problem with a dislike button... What do I say when someone failed a test or had a death in the family, or anything along those lines. Oh well... doubt it will ever be implemented no matter what we think.

Lol, when I was in the UK I requested two packets of cigarretes, doing the "two" sign with my hand. The guy looked shocked, never figured out why till later.

Oh well.

I don't know how it translates over the pond, but here in the UK those bottom two certainly look like rude gestures!

I see the one with the raised index finger and middle finger as the "peace" gesture as the palm is facing the viewer.
