Hi! I'm thinking a lot about social functionality for my future project and I don't know when do you need dislike button for comment, post, etc?
Services with dislikes
- youtube comments, videos
- reddit comments and posts
- disqus comments
- blizzard forum
- imdb reviews
- facebook (reactions)
- google plus (plus sign)
- medium (clap)
- xenforo cms (thanks)
- playmarket reviews (like)
- other 99% of social networks
I thought dislike functionality was trending in old days but while checking info about reddit, youtube were created in 2005, disqus in 2007, but facebook also was that early and it doesn't have it.
Also in my research I found out that almost all old websites with user reviews has like and dislikes (imdb, etc) but new ones like playstore has only like and report (report is not visible).
Nowadays it seems nobody cares about dislikes, except old review websites and old comment systems. I can see trend in favor new facebook reactions and renaming likes to hearts (twitter, instagram, etc) / claps (medium) / plus sign (gplus).
btw I don't get why a lot of websites allow to upvote your own comment or reddit publication.
So are dislikes dead? And when you must have it? Is there a golden rule when do or not you must have this?
