 Is Instagram hiding or removing the likes ?

Instagram is one of the most successful and popular social media platforms. Instagram had elements like as other social media had. They are like, comment, and sharing options. If you're an Instagram user, you could post your media like photos, videos, etc in your account. Your post might get those elements. A criticism had arisen between one who had more likes and one who had fewer likes in the society.


This is a mental condition that arises in the youngster's mind. The truth is that one should not measure his/her societal value with a post on Instagram or any other kind of social media platform. Instagram had considered this and decided to hide the count of likes for a post. Only the one who had posted the media could see the likes of that post. This should not be changed as the content creator might get discouraged if he/she itself cannot see his/her post reach.

Instagram just made the like count visibility to private and the one who is looking at the post might not exactly see the number of likes. They had just abstracted it with words. If the number of likes for a post is in the range of thousands, they had abstracted it to thousand instead of showing the exact count of likes. This change controls the mental pressure of an Instagram user. The company tested it out on countries such as Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia.

CNBC had introduced this theory that hiding likes might increase post density in a social media platform and it is being tested by Instagram. If you can't still see this change, you might not be in the area they updated. This is a good update as considered with mental conditions. The content creators might concentrate on good and quality content without concentrating on the content getting more likes.
