Instagram has officially unveiled a feature to hide likes.
This feature has been tested by the app for two years. This feature now allows all users to hide likes. Instagram has provided an option to hide likes only if you want.
Users will only be able to use this feature manually by going to Settings and turning it on. This feature allows users to hide likes on their posts and also hide likes on posts in their feeds.
Even if you hide likes, you can see that Koko is interacting in the post. The app believes that stopping showing likes will reduce the negative impact on users by comparing likes.
Studies have shown that the competition of likes is also affecting the mental health of many young users, which is expected to help to some extent when this feature comes.
