Facebook's like button might get some company soon from the "sympathize" button. Menlo Park based Facebook is thinking about adding the "sympathize" button, so your online friends can show their support.

The Huffington Post reports developers liked the idea, when it was introduced at a recent Facebook, hack-a-thon. The idea allows users to acknowledge sadness and loss without "liking" them.
