Debrief for December 9, 2013: New Facebook Buttons
submit to reddit

On this edition of The Debrief, George talked about new Facebook buttons, a caption contest and an uh-oh for SpaghettiOs.

George addressed the news that Facebook has considered adding a "Sympathize" button to accompany the ubiquitous "Like" button.

"Think of the possibilities," said George. "For a poorly thought-out post you could just click 'Meh.' Or for those people who are always outraged all the time no matter what you can click, 'I'm Defriending You Specifically Due To This Post, You Inhuman Monster!'

He also proposed this button:

"Help, I am an old person on Facebook — what time are the movies starting tonight?"
