Facebook May Add 'Sympathize' Button

Facebook is considering making it easier to sympathize with your friends.

The social media site is working on a button to switch out the "Like" button for posts that are sad or negative.

The way it would work is when someone posts something on Facebook they would be able to add an emotion to it and if the person chose the emotion of "depressed" or "sad" the post would have a "Sympathize" button instead of the usual "Like" button.

Some people feel uncomfortable liking a sad status but still want to show their support.
