Facebook is looking at introducing a Sympathize button (or “Sympathise button” for you folks across the pond), it has been leaked by Facebook engineer Dan Muriello. The Facebook sympathy button would be to express sympathy for posts when a “Like” just won’t do.

According to Muriello, the Facebook Sympathize button would only be available as an option for posts in which the user used one of the Facebook emoticons that denotes a feeling which would invoke sympathy, such as feeling sad, annoyed, angry or bad.

“It would be, ‘five people sympathize with this,’ instead of ‘five people like this,’ which, of course, a lot of people were — and still are — very excited about,” explained Muriello.

But before you get too excited, Muriello adds that “But we made a decision that it was not exactly the right time to launch that product — yet.”
