Title says it all. Have any of those petitions actually done a single thing?
They helps express public opinions, so it’s up to their target to decide whether listen to them or not. But many companies pays significant bills to their public relationships departments, so it’s usually not in their interest to ignore public opinion. But business is business. If public requires something which costs too much money, then it probably will be ignored.
Title says it’s ELI5 question. It is not. There’s nothing to explain, it’s a Yes or No question. And it is a googleable question. No, forget Google. [Change,org is literally showcasing the “victories” of its’ petitions.](https://www.change.org/)
