Facebook announced Wednesday that Instagram users will soon be able to hide like counts on their posts.
The company said was an attempt to “depressurize people’s experience on Instagram.” It will also be available to Facebook users in the coming weeks.
Users will both be able to hide like counts on posts they see, as well as their own posts.
You might’ve seen that we’ve been testing different options for a while and this update reflects the feedback we’ve gotten.
We want you to feel good about the time you spend on our apps and this is a way to give you more control over your experience. pic.twitter.com/K5dLt4Cn7T
