Instagram Dabbles allows users to hide the Like Counts on their posts. This is an effort from the Instagram Team to ease the pressure of seeking approval from others. While we are not sure about this, but according to reports this is actually an experiment from Facebook, and we could soon be seeing it no Facebook itself too.
Commenting on this a Facebook spokesperson told AFP that, “In 2019, we started hiding like counts for a small group of people to understand if it lessens some pressure when posting to Instagram, Some people found this beneficial but some still wanted to see like counts so they could track what’s popular. We’re testing this on Instagram to start, but we’re also exploring a similar experience for Facebook.”
According to Facebook, the likes on a post on social media can be seen as status symbols or indicators of worth. This would also be raising a lot of mental health concerns. So after some experts say the insatiable quest for “likes” can be addictive and have devastating effects, particularly for younger people.
