Millions of Facebook users have been wanting (craving), a button that would allow them to dislike a post. Right now choices are to either like a person’s post or comment on it. Some users want the ability to dislike a post. Just yesterday that ability is now reality. The problem is however, it is a scam. If you download the fake application to use on Facebook, you will dislike it.
You will be prompted to complete a survey and directed to a Firefox for a browser based dislike button. The Firefox add-on is not a part of the scam, however, you can go to the Firefox Add-on page without going through Facebook and avoid the scam and add their dislike button. Not sure why a dislike button is necessary but since so many Facebook users want the feature, I’m also not sure why Facebook doesn’t appease the masses and give them what they want.
After signing up for the dislike button and filling out the survey, everyone of your friends will be spammed asking them to sign up for the same dislike application that you signed up for. The creators of the scam get paid for everyone who visits their page so regardless of whether they choose the application, they make money.
Share this post or let all your Facebook friends know that there is no official dislike button and to avoid the tease, FACEBOOK DISLIKE BUTTON FINALLY HERE!, like the plague.
