Instagram developers want to hide likes

We have become accustomed to the fact that Instagram developers quite often introduce innovations. And for the most part

all of them are perceived by users positively. However, the next change in the social network can get a negative response. The point is that they want to hide “Likes” from users.

Social network developers believe that inRecently, Insta users have been paying too much attention to the number of likes under each post, and not the content itself. The number of hearts depends largely on the user's reaction to a particular post, whether he will read it or skip it. Someone generally generates as many likes as possible under the post in order to get approval from their colleagues.

At the moment, the button in the form of a heart is stillpresent on the social network. But developers are already actively testing a new kind of content, which implies the absence of information about the number of likes for others. That is, the “Like” function itself will remain, but only the author of this post will be able to see the number of likes under a photo or video. All others can only express the reaction.

So far, this change is in test mode, it is possible that social network developers will abandon this idea altogether, or maybe in the near future they will release an update to the application.
