Facebook is reportedly working on a ‘sympathize’ button to show support for somber updates

If you’ve ever felt strange “Liking” a status concerning the death of a pet or other gloomy news on Facebook, you may be able to voice your support in a more appropriate way soon. According to The Telegraph, the social network has a “Sympathize” button in the works that can be used when the original function isn’t exactly the best. The new item is the product of a recent hackathon event and will be tied to emotions tagged within updates to indicate the somber mood — only appearing in those specified instances. Unfortunately, there’s no timetable for launch, so you’ll still have to think twice about clicking “Like” for the time being.
