Instagram testing letting users hide likes count
A Facebook spokeswoman said on Wednesday that Instagram is launching a small global test where users can choose whether to hide like counts on their posts or other people’s posts. It is currently being tested and rolled out for permanent or extended after testing. This feature allows users to decide whether they want to show their like count or not on their posts or see them on content shared by other users.
If you want to show your likes count then you can show it on your post. But if you don’t want to show then you don’t show it on your post. It depends upon you. The Instagram spokeswoman said in the statement that in 2019, we started hiding like counts for a small group of people to understand if it lessens some pressure when posting on Instagram.
“Some people found this beneficial but some still wanted to see like counts so they could track what’s popular. ” The Spokesperson also said, “We’re testing this on Instagram to start, but we’re also exploring a similar experience for Facebook”.
