A thumbs-down button will appear next to the like option on an individual’s comment. Users can click that button to dislike and change their feedback by tapping the same button again. It is only the user who can downvote. However, the number of likes is visible to the public.
As per the tweet by TikTok Comms, the purpose of adding the new feature is to hear feedback from the community directly. It will allow the platform to foster the comments section for better interaction.
