So i guess some might like this while some might not, instagram says it plans on on disabling it like count feature.
You will no longer be able to see the likes on a post or photo, rather all you’re gonna be seeing is this post was liked by a few named handles “and others.”
According to the company, they said “We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get. During the test, only the person who shared a post will see the total number of likes it gets.”
The change is said to blend in with previous changes made like the introduction of it new tool that helps you keep track of how much time you spend in the app.
According to research, like counts is a major contributor to the service’s current negativity effect. Facebook and instagram are always testing new features to help improve usability, many of which never even launch.
