Instagram to launch new feature to hide how many ‘likes’ you get

Instagram is launching an experiment that will hide the number of likes in a bid to ease social media pressure.


The experiment that was rolled out in Canada, will now be tested in Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Italy.


By hiding the Like count from the posts, Instagram wants “your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get.”

An Instagram spokesperson said the company is not testing this change right now, but said that it’s always “exploring ways to reduce pressure” on its users.


Well, if Instagram indeed proceeds further with this, it will be welcomed by people for whom likes and followers are nothing but a number.


However, we are pretty sure this decision will leave influencers unhappy who make money off this platform based on how many likes their posts get and the number of followers they have – GSM Arena
