  • I'm sure you've heard all this by now, but Instagram just announced they're going to stop showing likes on the posts that you post.

  • How do you feel about this?

  • Don't answer out loud or raise your hand.

  • If you like it do a heart and if you don't, sad face.

  • Lot of sad faces.

  • Instagram said they're doing it because it actually lets users focus on photos and videos they share and makes it less about a popularity contest, which I think is a good idea.

  • But it shouldn't be a popularity contest - unless, if of course it was, I would win.

  • But I think if getting rid of something, they should get rid of comments.

  • That's what they should get rid of, is comments.

  • That's the problem right there.

  • That's where all the trouble is.

  • That's where people tell me about government conspiracy theories, and they ask me to visit their porn sites.

  • I like discovering new talent but not like that.

  • I don't.

  • Thanks though for your invitations.

  • Speaking of porn -- and aren't we always...

  • Instagram is also trying to stop people from using eggplant and peach emojis if they're using them in filthy, dirty ways.

  • So now it's going to be harder for me to tell Portia I want a piece of her peach cobbler for dessert.

  • I suddenly see their point because it doesn't sound right.

  • The thing is, even when things are banned, people are going to find ways to get around them.

  • If you can't use a like button you can leave a heart emoji for the comments.

  • If you can't use a peach there's a tomato.

  • If you can't use an eggplant there's a baguette, or a cucumber, or a corn on the cob, or a carrot, or a rocket, or a microphone, or a flashlight, or a cactus, or an inchworm.

  • I don't know what you're working with.

  • I don't know.

I'm sure you've heard all this by now, but Instagram just announced they're going to stop showing likes on the posts that you post.
