Another app that has also done a small change that will hopefully have a big impact is Instagram. It has added the option to hide the number of likes on posts. You can choose not to see the number of likes on other people’s posts by toggling the option in the settings and stop others from seeing the number of likes on your posts in your advanced settings when posting. I had first heard about it in 2019 at the ONDXB conference in Dubai. I have heard of people who take down a post if it doesn’t get a certain number of likes in a specific amount of time. This feature is meant to limit some of these behaviors and insecurities and encourage people to post and engage more frequently on the platform.
