Instagram Tests Removal of 'Likes' Feature

Instagram announced last week that it is planning to test a new feature that hides the total number of likes on photos and videos.

Likes will be removed from the main feed, permalink pages and profiles, as announced at Facebook's annual developer conference in San Jose.

While followers will no longer be able to see the total number of likes on a post, the account's owner will still can check who hearted the post.

"We are testing this because we want your followers to focus on the photos and videos you share, not how many likes they get," an Instagram spokesperson said.
