Instagram will soon be testing out a feature where the likes users normally receive on photos, ARE HIDDEN!
Currently and always, likes have always been shown alongside each Instagram photo – however Instagram might soon opt for a feature that only lists one ‘liking user’ alongside the phrase “and others” to indicate that more people like the photo.
Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri says of the change: “[It’s] about creating a less pressurized environment where people feel comfortable expressing themselves…We do hear people worry about how many like counts they get.” See an example below and let us know: IS THIS INSANE? IS THE ONLY REASON ANYONE USES INSTAGRAM IS FOR LIKES? ARE YOU GOING TO ABANDON INSTAGRAM NOW?
