Facebook’s New ‘Downvote’ Button is Rolling Out!

Well, if you remember, a few months ago we have shared a news regarding Facebook’s ‘Downvote’ Button. It is said that the social networking giant might be working on a new feature that will allow its users to dislike Facebook posts.
According to The Daily Beast, Facebook is about to test a new ‘Downvote’ button with a small group of users to get feedback. By clicking the downvote button, it will provide the user the choice to flag the post as “offensive”, “misleading”, or “off topic”.

The recent reports from TheNextWeb claim that Facebook wants users to use the ‘Downvote’ button to flag ‘bad comments’. So, if any user finds a comment that is having a ‘bad intentions or is disrespectful’ can simply click the downvote button.

It’s worth to note that Facebook is trying very hard not to make this new button come out as a ‘dislike’ button. Even a Facebook spokesperson said “We are not testing a dislike button. We are exploring a feature for people to give us feedback about comments on public page posts.”
You can actually compare the upcoming feature with the news aggregation site, Reddit, where users can vote on stories and comments via upvote and downvote buttons.

Right now Facebook users from Australia and New Zealand have access to the new downvote button. One of the Facebook’s spokesperson said “People have told us they would like to see better public discussions on Facebook, and want spaces where people with different opinions can have the more constructive dialogue”

“To that end, we’re running a small test in New Zealand which allows people to upvote or downvote comments on public Page posts. Our hope is that this feature will make it easier for us to create such spaces, by ranking the comments that readers believe deserve to rank highest, rather than the comments that get the strongest emotional reaction.”

So, what do you think about this? Share your views in the comment box below.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
