CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Facebook is working on a new button that would allow users to show disapproval.

When tapped, the "downvote" button would signal inappropriate, offensive, or misleading comments.

The test comes amid a push by CEO Mark Zuckerberg to create "meaningful" social interactions on the site.

According to The Verge, it's intended to be a method for flagging questionable comments on public posts.
