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…

I saw this too yesterday! So upsetting. I may not always have the time to read or comment on every post on my flist but I can't ever imagine just giving a <3 instead. It feels so impersonal. I mean it's fine for instagram and facebook but, as you stated, that is not what LJ is about. Sigh :/

Exactly... This is not the place for it! I don't understand why they decided to put such a feature... What's next? Reblog/Share options?
