Who says social media is overwhelmingly negative? Some curious YouTube users are discovering today that they can’t seem to find a video with a single “dislike.” Proof positive that something’s up: even Rebecca Black’s “Friday” music video was universally liked for several magical minutes today — until someone threw a switch at YouTube HQ and restored about a million “thumbs down” votes in an instant.
is my laptop messed up, every youtube vids has 0 dislike, i even went to the friday song no dislikes

Did @YouTube delete dislikes today? I haven't seen a single video with a single dislike, they still have thousands if not miillions of views

Is YouTube finally removing the dislike feature or is it just a bug?

Please tell me this is not a glitch, and Youtube has finally gotten rid of the dislike button.

@FearCrads YouTube now counts dislikes as likes. Not sure if bugged or if they are starting to remove the dislike function

It’s just a bug, apparently, but it was nice while it lasted.
Is the dislike button messed up on Youtube? Just clicked on one of my videos it had over 3,000 likes and no dislikes..that never happens ?
