Dislike the Dislike Button
Facebook is famous for a few things and one of those things is the pervasive "Like" button on status updates, pictures...just about everything. But despite the clamoring of users there's never been a "Dislike" button and, honestly, it's a little awkward to "Like" that your friend just got divorced or that their pet died.
Now, however, there's a 3rd party app that claims to be the "official dislike" button. The thing that should set off warning bells for users is that you have to download it though. Facebook is a web app. You don't need to download the "official" dislike button any more than you needed to download the omnipresent "like" button.
Sure enough, the "dislike" button app is malware.
Stay clear of it and let your friends and family who are Facebook users know to steer clear of it as well.
If you'd like to like us on Facebook, however, you don't need to download a thing. Just go to: http://www.facebook.com/rolandschorr.
