Instagram hiding likes to help those who are addicted to social media.

Instagram has recently decided and started hiding likes on posts. It is possible to see who likes the posts if you really want to look and scroll through the list of likes, which will deter many people unless they really want to do some digging. I think Instagram stepped up with social media and how it effects mental health. Many of us are dependent on our likes, shares, and comments to make us feel accepted in society. I personally think this change will make a bunch of kids crabby, but in the end I think it will make a big difference in the way we use social media to make ourselves feel valued. 

How do you feel about this change? Love to hear feedback!

If it weren't required to post on Instagram for these sites, I'd have already done away with it and twitter. I've already rid my life of FB in December, thank Bob. This time I deleted my FB account entirely instead of deactivating it.

I like it in some aspects but dislike it in others. I definitely think it’s good for mental health and the effects that social media has on people nowadays. I also dislike it though, as a micro influencer who relies on likes and engagement. It makes it harder to see who buys their followers and who grew their account organically!

IG like hiding

I didn’t know they could hide or with hold likes or credits tbh - and in some cases it depends how much you post & how many follow you.

People who are on IG a lot and have to use it to promote will not like these changes

its interesting because I have 2 different Instagram accounts, one for work and one is personal. My work one says the likes are private and nobody can see how many likes I have except me. However, when I go on my personal one and look at my work one I can see all of the likes just like I’ve always been able to.

Make up your mind insta, or at least be straight forward and honest with your users!
