Karissa Sitepu started this petition to Friends

Hello. Over the past few weeks, my friends have come across a communication problem: no matter what platform we use, each online communication platform is either too confusing, simplistic or does not reach everybody in the friend group. Since quarantine began, it has become increasingly challenging to organize group activities or redirect everyone to an event or topic. As of now, my friend group uses the social media platform Instagram to communicate. Unfortunately, one of the members, Jodi, are not permitted to use the app. This is one of the reasons why I support my friend group transferring to Discord (or at least make them create accounts and regularly check the communication platform).
Not that Instagram is evil or anything, but it is not the best method of communicating online. Arguably, the best aspects of an internet messaging platform include:
- Ability to send photos and videos
- Ability to start video/voice calls without a time or small population limit
- Ability to index photos and videos (AKA being able to search for a phrase and find its location on the chat and when it was sent)
- Accessible through phones and computers
and
- Ability to show how many people are active on the chat
Discord happens to check off all of these boxes. Unfortunately, it comes at a cost. The program is an arduous application to understand upon its initial use.
Well. How can we solve this problem?
The internet is a wild place where you can find the answers to anything. If somebody is confused, they could call up another acquaintance that understands the basic functioning of Discord. They could also watch a YouTube tutorial. The true versatility of the application makes up for its difficulty.
Thank you for considering this petition.
