Mr. Zuckerberg, are you listening?

Facebook needs a new button,

Beside the one called like,

What should the users do? Should like they still press?


There should rather be an option called symphathise,

That for the sake of humanity will be something wise.

The notable Bangladeshi newspaper made a report on this on 13 January 2014-
