The concept of a Facebook ‘dislike’ button has been the topic of discussion for years and is the most requested feature of all time.

But, back in September, it seemed users had finally got their wish, as Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook was working on a ‘Dislike’ button, acting as a tool to help people ‘express empathy’.

But now Cara Delevingne has had her say on the move. It’s fair to say she knows a thing or two about social media, boasting a staggering combined total of 36 million followers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, the 23-year-old model shared her concerns over the possible new addition and believes it could lead to a ‘new wave of bullying’ on social media.

She said: 

If you can go around disliking someone’s pictures, that is going to set off a whole new wave of bullying. These companies are making so much money, they just want the new thing. If it’s something that is going to cause people harm, I really think we should steer against that. ‘Like’ away — but if you have a bad thought about someone, keep it to yourself.

She has a pretty good point, to be fair. This comes after Facebook earlier this week released six new emoticons which can be used to show people’s reactions to posts.

But will all these new additions just cause more harm than good?
