Opinion on Instagram not showing likes

personally, this really annoys me.

I’m neutral about it. It’s good for mental health issues but it’s kinda annoying for those who don’t have a problem with the amount of likes a post has.

They show likes on pictures but not videos. On videos they only show views…
Not really a problem imo.

I think they should have an option to turn on or off. Some people like it, others don’t need it

Agreed, people should have the option to turn them on or off if they want to. I’m fine with keeping likes especially because I’m kindof analytical and enjoy looking at others’ engagement levels and stuff.

I think they’re testing it in a few countries like Australia, New Zealand, Ireland etc. before introducing it to the rest of the world, but I agree with some of the previous replies saying it should be optional :man_shrugging: idk
