Facebook Tests Downvote Button to Hide Offensive Content

Facebook Says It's Not Testing A "Dislike Button", But A "Downvote" Button Is Definitely Out There
How can Facebook promote meaningful interaction between users?
For now, downvoting a comment will only hide it from view for the particular user. CEO Mark Zuckerberg also said in 2015 the company was working on a "downvote" button at the time. The new "downvote" on the other hand is rather to provide feedback to Facebook regarding whether the respective content is offensive, misleading or simply off-topic or irrelevant.
On Twitter Some Facebook users have reported about "downvote" button in the comment section of posts on public Facebook pages. Those could help Facebook figure out if the comment is objectionable, a form of "fake news", or just irrelevant.
There is already a "Hide" option in place on Facebook for comments but it is concealed behind the drop-down arrow. The screenshots come from Christina Hudler.
Facebook said that there will be no visible count of downvotes on comments.
The test is now made available for 5% of Android users in the United States with the English language setting. In early January, the company announced a major overhaul to fill newsfeeds with more content from friends, less from pages. The new feature was spotted earlier this morning and it's now only being tested with a small number of users in the United States.
