Remove the heart button on Instagram!

This petition had 1,245 supporters


Throughout the ages, people have texted proper love hearts to eachother, pressing 2 buttons to produce an image. A less than sign < and a three 3.

Nobody ever had a problem with this method, but then Instagram was born.

It's DM system allows you to send a love heart with one click, directly next to the send button. At first, it was mainly used to spam, as there was no cool down on the button, but even though a cool down was added, the button still presents many problems.

The amount of times unknowning people have accidentally pressed this button during conversations is immeasurable, and ultimately leads to an annoying explanation to the person receiving said heart or a very awkward conversation.

Secondly, this button simply makes people lazy! Many poor, tortured souls have stopped ending conversations with 'goodnight' or 'goodbye' or any other valediction. They simply send a heart. This heart simply has no meaning anymore and is used as a lazy way to say that you like something or say goodbye. 

Whatever your stance is on the state of Instagram, you must agree that this button has so many issues that easily outway it's benifits.

IF YOU WANT TO SAVE INSTAGRAM, HELP US TAKE THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS ITS REDEMPTION!
