Instagram announced today that it has launched a new feature that will give its users more control over the display of like numbers.
In Instagram 2019, it started a test with a group of users on hiding the number of likes in posts. Evaluating the feedback on this topic, Instagram realized that some people prefer to hide their like numbers, while others want to see their like numbers so that they can follow what’s popular. In light of this information, Instagram started to introduce a new feature to give more control to its users.
Thanks to this feature, people:
– Show or hide like counts on own Instagram posts
– Will be able to choose to see the likes of other people’s posts on the Instagram Feed or not.
