Sometime within this week and next week, Instagram will be running a test on its users. Don't worry, this will only be tested in Canada, for now...
The test will feature users not being able to see the number of likes on other peoples posts. You will still be able to see your own likes but you won't be able to show off the number of likes to others. According to PetaPixel,
The goal of this potential change is to make Instagram less of a post popularity contest and more about the content itself.
People on Instagram have been getting a good amount of money out of likes from followers. Will this affect all the instagram models and influencers? Would you still use Instagram even if people can't see your likes? Let us know what you think.
