Zuckerberg said that the company hopes to launch the function soon, adding that Facebook does not want the new tool to allow a down-voting and up-voting system, like that of sharing site Reddit. Now, users only have the option of “liking” friends’ posts about news events like the refugee crisis or commenting about them. “What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment,” Zuckerberg said.
