Please consider making the follow button change shape if you've followed the user

Right now, the difference between the appearance of the button between the pages of a followed and a non-followed user is just too subtle, and I always end up having to stare at the button for a few seconds if I don't remember whether I'm following this person - or if I'm just not sure that my click of the follow button registered.

On top of maybe changing the colour of the button, making it change shape is a much more reliable way of making sure everybody who uses the site (INCLUDING colourblind users, and I'm not even (that) colourblind myself) can tell the difference.


The developers have changed it so the wording changes from "Follow" to "Following" when you are following a user. This should hopefully help anyone who may be colorblind.
