How to turn off likes on Instagram in 2022


Instagram is going to start hiding likes. This means that only the person who posts a photo or video will be able to see the number of likes that it receives. This change is being made in order to make the platform more "healthy" and to encourage users to post more authentic content. So, how can you make sure that your posts get lots of likes in 2022?


Instagram just added the ability to conceal like and view counts on all posts in a user's feed, in an effort to improve the user experience. Users may concentrate on the substance rather than the popularity of the material in this way.


Users may now conceal the like and view counts on their own posts from other users thanks to this upgrade. You may conceal the like and view count on a post either before or after it has been published.


Here's how conceal Instagram likes on your own photos and in your feed.


To conceal likes on other accounts, follow these steps:

2. Select the three black lines in the upper right corner of your Instagram profile.

3. Select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.

4. Search for posts and pick "Posts" from the results.

5. Select "Hide Like and View Counts" from the drop-down menu.



How to retroactively hide likes on your Instagram post:


1. Go to the post you want to conceal likes on and tap the three gray dots in the upper right corner.

2. Select "Hide Like Count" from the drop-down menu.

3. After hiding like counts beneath a post it will say "liked by one user and others."




This change is being made to encourage engagement and reduce the pressure for people to only post content that gets a lot of Likes just because they want followers or likes back. The decision by Instagram has been criticized as making life easier for bullies who can now freely attack others without fear of retribution from their victim's social media friends; however, it also helps those with mental health issues like anxiety and depression who struggle when viewing all the Likes on other peoples' posts.


If you're worried about this new policy altering how much attention your photos get in comparison to someone else's photo (or if you feel like hiding certain parts of your profile), don't worry about that. Focus on getting the right attention not all the attention.
