This test is to prevent others from seeing the number of likes of posts, and the author can confirm all the users who added “likes”. This test is expected to be applied to some users in seven countries: Japan, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and New Zealand, and started in Canada in May 2019. Depending on the result of this test, you may not be able to see the number of likes on Instagram.


Competition in SNS has become a kind of social problem, and in particular, Instagram has been taken up by its negative influence as bad for mental health.

Instagram said during the test, “I want your friends to focus on the photos and videos themselves, not the number of likes”, and Mia, Facebook ’s head of policy for Australia -Garrick commented, 'I hope this feature will remove the pressure on how much I like'.
