So we heard that Facebook was looking to introduce an Unfollow option to its social network soon which sounds like a great way of unfriending someone without offending them. While we’re on the subject of new features for Facebook, we know that many people out there are asking for a “dislike” button, a feature which we’re not sure will ever manifest itself, but it seems that Facebook could be considering a “sympathize” button. There are times when posts are made about a death of a celebrity, family member, the loss of a job, a breakup, and etc., and while it is understood that the “like” button does not actually mean you’re basking in their misery, we suppose having a “sympathize” button would be more accurate.
The “like” button can be used to convey various meanings, such as acknowledgement of your post/comment, a thank you, or a “that’s funny, I liked that”, just to name a few. The concept of a “sympathize” button was conceived by a Facebook engineer during the company’s hackathon that was held a while back. The idea was apparently well-received by fellow staff members, but unfortunately Facebook decided it was not the right time to launch such a feature, for now. What do you guys think of this idea?
Do you normally type looking at the keyboard, or are you an expert who is able to type out words without having to look at your keyboard at all? For those who type for a living, such as writers, it is a skillset that is developed overtime, although interestingly enough it seems that those who type fast might not necessarily know where all the keys are. This is according to a study conducted by the Vanderbilt University which was published in the scientific journal, “Attention, Perception, and Pschyophysics”.
