TikTok has a new feature and this time for the comments section of its short videos.
On Friday, TikTok announced via tweet that it’s globally releasing a new dislike button feature for TikTok video comments. The tweet announcement offers some details on what to expect and pictures of the new feature:

Basically, the dislike button works the way you might think. If you see an unrelated or inappropriate comment, you can choose a new dislike button (thumbs down icon to the right of the like button/heart icon). While comments can still display the number of likes displayed next to them, TikTok says that the number of dislikes collected by comments will not be displayed at all. TikTok users can also “take back” their dislike by selecting the button again.
Which begs the question: If the number of dislikes isn’t shown next to a comment, why have a no like button at all? Well, according to TikTok’s tweet thread announcement, it’s a way for users to notify TikTok of “irrelevant or inappropriate comments” so TikTok can “create a better experience for our community.” Even so, it’s still unclear what happened to the comments that got a lot of dislike. We reached out to TikTok for clarification on what happened to the comments that received a lot of dislike and if we hear back, we’ll update this article with the response.
