Instagram has considered hiding the like count on people’s photos

Instagram has considered hiding the similar account in the photos, so audiences can not see how many people liked an individual post. An unpublished feature that would be publicly hidden as counts was discovered today by code-hunter Jane Wong, who says that the test indicates that Instagram wants "its followers to focus on what it shares, not how much" I like "it. they receive their publications. " Only the person who posted. A photo can see the amount of "I like" you have received.

Instagram says he has not tried the feature. In a statement to The Verge an Instagram spokesperson said: "We are not testing this at the moment, but exploring ways to reduce pressure on Instagram is something we are always thinking about."

Details of the test came a few days after Independent indicated that the Office of the British Information Commissioner has recommended that social platforms, such as Instagram and Snapchat, offer the option to deactivate features such as "I like" and "dashes" that encourage users to continue publishing. The agency wants to prohibit these functions to protect the security and privacy of the younger users of the platforms.

This would be a huge change How the platform works. The tastes, although sometimes they are absolutely demoralizing, encourage people to publish and give them incentives to publish content that they perform. It can also encourage the publication of less authentic content, however, such as magnificent landscapes, photos of nudity or thirst traps that could accumulate "I like", but are not the most interesting or the most reflective.
