You are here:Instagram hiding likes?

Last week the Head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri had an interview with CBS News. One of the points he raised was making sure instagram doesn’t feel like competition, thus they were playing with making the like counts private

He explains it himself saying

“One of the ideas we’re currently experimenting with is like counts private, for instance, ’cause we don’t want Instagram to be such a competition. We want it be a place where people spend more of their energy connecting with the people that they love and the things that they care about,”

The’ve been testing this feature (or shall i say anti-feature 🤔..) for a few months now, with some instagram users posting on reddit how they’ve noticed likes are only being shown to the poster.

What do you think? Good or bad idea? Do you see this as harming the instagram model? #letusknow
