Hater App: For anyone who wishes Facebook had a “Dislike” button

March 12th, 2013 by ProcessFlows

Have you ever wished Facebook had a “Dislike” button? You don’t need one. Now there’s an app that allows you to share the things you hate. Hate on celebrities, politicians, bad service, too much traffic, classmates or annoying Facebook friends.


Hater app is an alternative social networking application, intended for sharing all the things you don’t like. According to the developer, Jake Banks – a former head of production company in New York, who sold off the business to dedicate himself to Hater full-time – the language and symbols of Facebook and Instagram, such as “like” and “recommend”, force the users to be overly positive and let’s face it – extremely fake.

“I don’t want to be the guy pretending to be someone I’m not. I want to be real and say – I’m sitting in traffic and I hate this”, said Banks for Mashable. While you can vent out like that in a comment on Facebook or Twitter, Banks believes that providing a dedicated community for dislikes frees up users from thinking twice about what they post. On Hater you can take anything off your chest. You’ve got a Facebook friend that keeps posting pictures of their baby’s first everything? Vent out on Hater without the risk of being labelled as a heartless, baby-hating monster.

At the moment the only social networking website that remotely provides Hater’s functionality is Reddit with its facility to “upvote” or “downvote” posts. Hater, which design-wise looks like Instagram, is currently available to iPhone users only, but is expected to launch on Android in the next couple months.
