It’s taken six years, but the “Like” button will finally have the yin to its yang. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday that the long clamored for “Dislike” button will be a thing. Or at least something like it. 

According to The New York Times, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday that the company is working on a button that expresses negative emotions, saying, “It’s important to give people more options than just like.”

“Not every moment is a good moment, and if you are sharing something that is sad, whether it’s something in current events, like the refugees crisis that touches you or if a family member passed away, then it may not feel comfortable to like that post,” Zuckerberg said, according to The Times

Facebook debuted the “Like” back in 2009. There is no timeline on when the new feature will arrive.
