This term originates from Facebook, where you can publicly say you "like" something, and then have the option to take the "like" back. "Unlike" does not mean you dislike something.

To reverse or negate one's previous liking of something. Unlike is, in that sense, the reciprocal of like. It does not mean "dislike." It is a word specifically reserved for negation of one's previous liking of something. It is not preemptive, thus a thing cannot be unliked before it has been liked. In order to be unliked, a thing must be currently liked, regardless of whether or not it has ever been liked or unliked in the past.
To put it mathematically:
If Like(7)=14, then Unlike(14)=7
but if Unlike(12)=5, then Like(5) does not necessarily equal 12.
