Removing likes from IG - November 22nd 2019, 09:27 AM

Hi

I've heard rumours about instagram will remove likes, so it isn't "like-hunting" in there.
I guess many people measure themselves with likes on facebook and instagram.

What do you think?
Should they remove the like-function? Or keep it?

Hugs from Lucy

I don't post much on social media, so it doesn't matter to me. But I do think quite a few people post things for likes, so it will be interesting to see how this affects them. I think it can be good so that people aren't comparing or focusing purely on likes, but then I wonder if people will use instagram less? And maybe continue to post stuff for likes on other platforms instead?

I think the likes are good. To see if the post goes out to people.
But at the same time, idk, people shouldn’t get sad for having less likes.

I have not heard about this and I didn't realize the amount of "likes" affected a IG post.

I imagine it would on Facebook, but not other social media platforms.

I think they should keep it. I like photos because I like them and have no clue what to comment. I will admit I do get ticked
Off when I get licks and not comments but, I do understand it.


Edit: so I just looked it up and they aren’t planning on removing the like function, they plan on removing who can see how many likes a picture gets. It also said only for some US users. So I think it will effect the bigger accounts.

No need to be sorry. I was just curious so I looked it up.
