Not going to happen
Sadly, it's unlikely ad-dependent Facebook would ever do anything that could be turned against its advertisers. Think how embarrassing it would be if, say, Coca Cola got more dislikes than likes.

One more favorite
This was another good one: a grammar alert button for those who confuse their/there/they're among other mistakes that drive people like me crazy. :-)

What else would you add? Let's hear them.

Re: One more favorite
Did you seriously ask for a grammar button and immediately follow the request with improper use of here/hear?????  Zoinkers....

Humblebragging
I vote for a "Humble Bragger" button for people who engage in that exquisitely passive-aggressive form of bragging. For instance, someone who posts a picture of his view of a basketball game from the third row and writes, "Boy, did I luck out getting these tix. Can't believe it!" I prefer they just gloat about it ("Woo hoo. Third row baby!") -- it's more honest.

Shrug
The Shrug button says, "I could barely work up the energy to click this button, your post is so boring"

Forgive button
It's interesting how easily Facebook posts elicit the snarkier side of humanity.  Maybe we simply need a forgive button, that would let us to practice forgiveness instead of scorn whenever someone decides to post something truly stupid, thoughtless, or selfish. (Uh-oh. I can feel the scorn coming.)

Look at me!
I vote for the Narcissist button for those people whose primary activity on FB is posting selfies (typically doctored with a filter).  Drives. Me. Crazy.

Sympathize Button, Meet Grumpy
How about the "get off my lawn" button for when we are feeling old and grumpy and those lil whippersnappers are complaining about their 10th high school reunions?

Maybe there needs to be a ....
Get off Facebook button and stop posting every life event. That would work for TMI , a shrug, and really any post.  People are just spending way too much time on Facebook!
