While you can still 'like' you can also 'Love' and 'Haha' as well as be 'Sad' or 'Angry' with something. If you're speechless, you can 'Wow.'

But people are still scratching their heads over the nonappearance of a 'Dislike' button.

Mark has revealed why in a recent announcement, writing "Not every moment you want to share is happy.

"Sometimes you want to share something sad or frustrating. Our community has been asking for a dislike button for years, but not because people want to tell friends they don't like their posts.

"People wanted to express empathy and make it comfortable to share a wider range of emotions."

Facebook representatives have concurred with the choice, saying a dislike button would be used to bully or upset people.

Apparently it is just boring to Mark!
