Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

This is sort of a “what if” page. It’s going to be short and sweet. It’s really just a contained rant.

So many Internet sites, Yahoo Answers, Facebook, etc. have a way for you to “like” a page or a comment, but they don’t have a thumbs down option.

Example: Like this particular politician? Give him a thumbs up.

What if I hate that person and I want to say so? I don’t even get a vote. You can only vote in favor of the person, or the cute kitty playing the trombone, or whatever. There’s no option to say, “Hell, no.” Why is that?

Instead of this:

A social media page the way it usually is.

A social media page the way it usually is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wouldn’t the public get a more accurate idea how everyone else feels about the subject if they could see this?

A social media page the way it should be.

A social media page the way it should be.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s your opinion? What if all social media were the way I think they should be? What complications could you create for a main character with a thumbs down type of page? Tell me in the comments (thumbs up or down).
