Instagram continues to experiment with the waiver of the display of Like numbers. Users in a small global test group can in future decide whether to hide the number of likes in the contributions of others and turn them off for their own posts. It is also working on a comparable function for the Instagram-Mutter Facebook platform, as companies announced on Wednesday.
Instagram had already started a test in 2019, which was removed for some users of the Like counter. Now the photo platform pulled a first record: "Some users feel less pressurized when they do not see the number of likes. Others want to see the number of Likes so they can track what's just announced. "
At the beginning of March, Instagram ensured unrest as the Like ad was accidentally removed for many users who were not part of the previous test group. Instagram boss Adam Mosseri apologized and the numbers were quickly restored. (dpa)
