The social media platform wants you to focus on the content, not likes.

Eventually they will hide comments that do not agree with the narrative. American-owned discussion forums like reddit.com is already doing this -- you even have to use specific sorting criteria to dig out certain replies or posts, or they are simply not visible in the thread.

The reason instagram existed was for pictures. In reality they need to keep like and dislike and remove comments. Anyone reads Celebs' commentators??

Kajzi, 18 Jul 2019Still don't get the point of Instagram though. Their users ... moreI actually prefer Instagram over Facebook. it's not cluttered with notifications, posts that others liked (because this is completely separate from your feed), free from "news" that people shared or liked and are being passed as "real news". Just don't follow the "influencers" or "Instagram models" and you're good.

Influencers on suicide watch. Even if I have friends who are influencers in FB, they deserve a career death too.

Dilu.Dill, 18 Jul 2019What's wrong with life hacks? Household Hacker and Crazy Russian Hacker showed us every hack possible so there's no more new hacks. All we get nowadays from life hacks is rehashed content made by people who watches these two OG Hackers and Matthew Santoro.

They should just remove the like button, who the fark cares if someone likes a photo or not

Instagram models = dead

In my opinion, Instagram is only useful for when you are feeling "romantic", are alone, and have a spare 5 mins. Your mileage may vary.

the only people this will affect are the narcasistic people out there, who place likes as some sort of self importance in their lives, the influencer argument is stupid, companies use alsorts of tracking methods on accounts to see your fanbase, likes are just a small piece of a larger database, once you have a business profile you get all sorts of analytical data to viewed so this will not affect them one bit, personally i think they should just remove likes all together
