No, not here too!  
No LJ... WHY?

I don't know if you guys noticed but, LJ now gives you the option to leave a heart to an entry... You all know what it means... People will stop comment and just heart entries! I really don't like this because I like to have conversations with my friendlist, and I hope I'm not the only one feeling disappointed by this new addition!

I really don't understand the need for it! I understand it in socials like instagram, because you're saying you're liking that photo, but what about here? It doesn't make any sense... Here a post about my day and its ups and downs... heart... What does it mean? LJ is a place where we use words to espress ourselves and create a dialogue with other people... These hearts are not lovely, are a way to say "I read it, I'm not taking the time to write a comment, I have to do something else". This is very upsetting to me!

I wil heart entries, if there is something to heart (like a photo post or a video post) but I will always comment, because this is why I am here, to create a dialogue and get to know people! Basically hearts don't get us closer... They keep us apart!

This is how I feel about it.

P.S. I'm on my lady days so I feel pretty strong about a lot of things xD

    I'm here! I'm not planning to leave any time soon and I'm in the frame of mind I am going to go when/if they show me the door, but not…

Ohh noooo!!
I saw it on a comm just a few hours ago and didn't know what the hell it was.
I'm seriously hoping it doesn't go further than this, but I do have faith that people will still comment. At least I hope they will o.o THat's the whole point of this place.

That's probably what I will do, heart entries if there is something in it I really like, and comment. My feelings about this are in line with yours.

Further than this? You think they would actually add the reblog/share feature? because that's the next step and that's just scary! I really hope they're going to stop here and see how much people don't like this!

The cynical pessimistic side of me feels like it will, and it won't be a surprise if it will.
I'd like to think and hope that it won't though.
We can gripe and complain all we want, but with LJ's track record, they won't listen.

Sigh!
