Female Instagram influencers, and regular visitors of Dubai and other warm destinations paid by rich dudes must be going crazy

The Voice of Reason, 10 Nov 2019> Do you think Instagram should hide the like counts from pos... moreI do agree with you about YouTube. I have watched numerous videos with the same topic or subject that has less view but stupendous content quality than the one with millions of views but really annoyed the hell out of me with all those meme faces and crap screaming.

I already see loads of self proclaimed models and many influencers getting nervous breakdowns...

If only all other platforms did the same...

Also, some people just can't live without having an idol.

> Do you think Instagram should hide the like counts from posts?

Not only that but other social networks and YouTube as well. Also YouTube should also hide the number of views. For some reasons people equal likes/views to something really good and that leads to utter abominations in terms of quality/content/ingenuity/creativity/intelligenc­e to be popular.

Listen up Facebook

My thoughts are Instagram should be banned, too many idiots trying to be famous and too many idiots following them, not good for society

"Influencers" and social climbers are gonna die now that no one will know the number of likes in their posts. The days when number of likes equates to popularity has finally. Thank goodness.

Anders, 09 Nov 2019This will kill their platform. The only reason people use Instag... moreWell, aren't you quite the "woke" contrarian.

People will be less inclined to press the "like" button if the number of likes are not visible. It's a monkey-see-monkey-do mentality. People drop off the platform because they do not get as many likes as before and influencers also drop off because potential business partners cannot see their like count. I foresee a drop in user engagement and the eventual death of Instagram.

get rid of it. they should have never instituted "like" counts in the first place, it's a dumb childish idea.

Hiding post???
Can it hide a virus someone sending via instagram???
